Legal Education

We offer a range of workshops and training for individuals and organisations. Some of the legal education services we offer include:

  • Tailored workshops: We can tailor workshops to your community group; on Māori land, domestic violence, employment law and many other legal topics.
  • Education in Te Reo Māori: Our Pou Whirinaki team can deliver education in te reo Māori at your local marae or kaupapa Māori group.
  • Governance and Te Tiriti o Waitangi: We also run education targeted at governance and managers of community groups such as Treaty of Waitangi training and understanding charity law.
  • In your suburb: We regularly arrange talks at local outreach clinic locations.

Community Advocacy Training

Community Law holds regular half-day workshops on essential kaupapa for Community Workers, arming you with the legal knowledge you need to advocate for your clients effectively. These workshops blend the legal basics with their practical application, offering the expertise of guest speakers working in the sector.
