Our kaupapa (purpose and guiding principle) is:

“To empower young New Zealanders to use their legal skills in the public interest”

We seek to build and strengthen the public interest law community in New Zealand, by:

  • Motivating young lawyers to work in public interest law
  • Showcasing public interest pathways
  • Uniting like-minded individuals committed to public interest law
  • Sparking further debate about the role of lawyers in our society.

Our vision is of a vibrant, principled, and progressive legal community in Aotearoa that is committed to addressing unmet legal needs and using law as a tool to make a difference.
