Legal Education Days

We offer full and half day training programmes aimed at community workers. Each training aims to give you an understanding of the legal issues likely to be faced by clients and inform them of where to go for help. 

These days are held throughout the year, for more information on upcoming Legal Education Days contact education@canlaw.org.nz
