A celebration of the 150th year of the New Zealand Law Society

By Jacque Lethbridge - 30 Oct 2019

Jacque Lethbridge had the great pleasure of delivering a speech on behalf of community law for the commemorative sitting of the High Court recognising 150 years of the NZLS. The Chief Justice, Helen Winkelmann, presided over the ceremony.

A copy of Jacque's speech is here. In it Jacque talks about the history of community law in New Zealand. From humble beginnings above a butcher's shop in Grey Lynn, the community law service movement has spread to over 24 independent community law centres across the country with over 53,000 casework clients being attended to annually.

Jacque is Chairperson of the Auckland Community Law Centre Board.
