Finding help

The University of Otago Legal Issues Centre is a research centre and cannot provide any advice or assistance with individual legal problems or complaints.

If you have unresolved legal problems, we recommend you go to the New Zealand Law Society’s, ‘Find a Lawyer’ page. Alternatively, you could contact your local Community Law office for assistance.

If you have a complaint about a lawyer, we recommend you go to the New Zealand Law Society’s, Lawyers Complaints Service.
