Community Law Waikato - Te Tari Ture aa-Hapori o Waikato, believe that people have a right to know and understand the law.
In addition to our legal services, we offer and deliver a range of law related education throughout the year.
We share practical knowledge through qualified professionals including lawyers and experts in other fields.
The aim is to build confidence, provide knowledge on legal rights and responsibilities, and support people to make informed decisions in their everyday lives. We believe education enables us all to participate in and contribute to inclusive and healthy communities.
Our "Law and You" programme is aimed at providing young people with information on basic legal rights and responsibilities.
The objective is to empower and aid youth with transitioning into adulthood. It is also a useful resource for parents and those who work with young people.
Some of the topics covered are “Your Job Your Future”, “Renting Your Own Place”, “Licencing, Cars & Driving”, “Money Wise”, and “Technology Users”.
