The Community Law Manual is a trail-blazing resource that helps Kiwis (and their advocates) help themselves. It 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.
The Community Law Manual is released in a new edition every July. This means we both print a new edition of the book, and also publish the information online, in July every year. It’s important to know however that the law can change quickly, and we can’t ensure the information here is 100% up-to-date all of the time.
It is also important to note that this manual does not give readers the tools to provide legal advice. Interpreting the law and advising someone about what action they should take are jobs for a qualified lawyer. For legal advice on a specific issue, it is important to consult with a lawyer. The first place to ask for help is your local Community Law Centre.
You can consul the 800+ page manual online at the Community Law website here.
