Volunteer Programme

We welcome the support of our volunteers as Legal Assistants.

  • Assist with answering phone calls, legal research and client interviews.
  • Suitable for year two and above law students and graduates.
  • On-going and regular – volunteers must complete 1 fixed shift each week (minimum) for the entire intake. Each shift is 3 hours.
  • We have two volunteer sessions each workday: 10am to 1pm and 1pm to 4pm. These are at our office in Manukau.
  • We have 3 intakes a year – see the Volunteer Calendar 2024 for application and intake dates.

If you require detailed information about what the volunteer programme entails, click here. Our volunteer programme is suitable for completing your community law paper requirements.

Please note that we expect volunteers to come to every shift during the intake and commit to the entire intake except where you are not able to attend due to illness or an emergency. We are heavily reliant on volunteers to operate our advice line and absences unfortunately compromise our service to our clients. In order to be accepted into a volunteer position, you must complete a police vetting form, and attend the relevant induction and training sessions. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the Volunteer Legal Assistant Application Form and email it to us at along with your CV. We will let you know if we have a place for you.
