Tell people about their rights and responsibilities

Comment 10th September 2010

Amend the Access to Justice Act so that contracts to provide legal advice can include legal education in line with the guidance to community law centres in New Zealand.

Why does this matter?

Expert information and advice about rights and responsibilities helps people to avoid legal problems and enables them to solve more of problems themselves.

Lots of people especially vulnerable people don't know about the law and don't know that they may have a problem that can be solved.  Lawyers should work in the community as part of the Big Society to help people to become more responsible and able to solve their own problems.
