Ngāi Tahu Māori Law Centre

We provide a free legal service for Māori land matters and aim to educate and empower all members of our community.

2022 Pānui

Kia ora e te whānau!

It has been a while since we gave an update on the goings on at the Law Centre, and there is quite a bit to update you on.

Earlier this year the Law Centre bid farewell to our lease extraordinaire Paul, and our dear curly friend Louie who have headed over to warmer pastures in Australia. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and lots of laughs Paul!

Big congratulations to Caitlin and Grace for being admitted to the bar, levelling up from law clerks to lawyers. Both admissions were great days of celebration shared with whānau. Caitlin and Grace both spoke beautifully in their first addresses to the Court. The legal community is lucky to have them both and we are all excited to see what you do in your careers.

We also have some new members of the Ngāi Tahu Maori Law Centre whānau to welcome. This year we have taken on some awesome part time staff – James, Larissa, and Henry. Check out our tangata profiles to get to know them a bit better.

Last but not least, Shelley Kapua-Tarpey is joining us part time until the end of 2022, at which point she will take over from Joy as Manager. It is hard to imagine the Law Centre without Joy, but we know it will be in good hands with Shelley!
