Sometimes, people can solve their legal problems without needing to speak to a lawyer.
Community law centres provide a lot of resources to help people resolve disputes, problems or other legal issues without seeing a lawyer.
Community Law Centres o Aotearoa provides the Community Law Manual, a trail-blazing resource that helps Kiwis (and their advocates) help themselves. The Community Law Manual sets out legal information in an accessible way for everyday users. The Community Law Manual deals with many areas of community and personal life and provides answers and solutions to common legal questions.
We also provide a selection of template legal letters that help people to deal with common consumer, employment, privacy and tenancy issues.
