Education hub

Part of our work is providing Legal Education to our community which is available to families, whanau, youth, rangitahi, community workers, not for profit organisations, schools, elderly-kaumatua, residents, visitors and new migrants.

We can come to your place to host these seminars, or we can provide the venue for you. 
We have an experienced team who deliver quality interactive sessions and we are happy to co-facilitate. 
We are very flexible when we provide these seminars for you.

We will be launching the lunch time law bites in 2015 which now will be named  "lunchtime law at the library"
This is a very popular 40 minute informative session, and you will be provided with information to take away.
These will be held at the Marlborough District Council Library on Arthur Street. 
Click to see when they start and what topics we will be talking about.  
 
We also provide other workshops/seminars that are much longer than the 40 minute "lunchtime law".  Our seminars and workshops can be tailored made to suit your organisation's needs, such as 1/2 day, 1-3 days or a hui on Marae.  We have listed some topics below for your information.
