Law For Change Wellington

Law For Change Wellington re-launched its activities in style late 2013 with the Mentor Lounge series, which gave young lawyers and graduates the opportunity to meet and speak with people with experience in an area of public interest law.

We’re now building a base of  members in Wellington, so we’d love to hear from anyone interested in any aspect of what Law For Change does. You can also follow us on Facebook.

Coordinators

Luke Fitzmaurice

Wellington Coordinator

Luke is a graduate of Victoria University. He is hugely passionate about social justice and about enabling others to make a difference. Prior to joining the Law for Change crew, Luke was a member of the Executive Committee of the Wellington Community Justice Project. He was inspired by the like-minded individuals he found at WCJP, and remains a firm believer in the power of a united group of people passionate about effecting change. He loves emotive speeches at the end of B-grade Hollywood films, and uses the term 'collective social consciousness' a lot. Luke's other passions include the other LFC (Liverpool Football Club), the Wellington Phoenix and Tim Tams. All at once.

    Eryn Rogers

    Wellington Regional Steering Group

    Eryn helps to arrange regional events and fosters the relationship between Law for Change Wellington and the Wellington branch of JustSpeak (an organisation who work tirelessly to improve New Zealand’s criminal justice system). She is a recent graduate of Otago University, where she attained a conjoint degree in Law and Pacific Studies. In 2013 she moved to Wellington to work for the Tribunals Unit, and is excited to be part of a system providing ordinary New Zealanders with better access to the justice system. Having only recently become a Wellingtonian, Eryn has found Law for Change a great way to get connected with the local legal community and has been inspired by the amount of time and resources that well established lawyers are willing to give to the cause.
