Free Legal Advice in Your Neighbourhood

As well as our daily drop-in sessions at our offices in Wellington & Lower Hutt, our community lawyers also regularly visit your local neighbourhood. We call these Outreach Clinics, and they happen on either a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly timetable.

Most of our Outreach Clinics don’t require an appointment, but the ones with the * [asterisk] symbol do. Those are Ōrongomai Marae, Waiwhetū Marae, Kōkiri Marae, and Porirua Whānau Centre. It’s important that you make an appointment for these clinics, because if we have no bookings a lawyer might not be there.

Give us a call on 04 499 2928 or email us on info@wclc.org.nz if you need help making an appointment, or have any questions. Below is our timetable.
