The NZBA is working hard to support its members while the country is dealing with Covid 19. We are liaising with the courts, the Ministry of Justice, the New Zealand Law Society and other professional bodies. 

If you have any comments or suggestions for how we can advocate on your behalf, please get in touch. And let us know how you're doing.

Below are some links to important information, including the protocols for the Courts. Again, let us know if you would like more information included on this page.

We are all worried about finances. Our member benefits provide some real savings.

There are two ways to access these savings but BOTH require you to login using your member id (which is the email address that we send your member updates to) and your password.  You can access your savings via:

  1. Our Member benefit app. Download the app.
  2. The website member benefits section

Are you ok?

If you are not experiencing some stress at this time, you must have nerves of steel or be meditating non-stop. The question is what degree of stress is too much and at what point you need to seek help. This is something we all have to watch and the most important thing you can do is say you need help or ask others if they are okay.

The New Zealand Law Society is offering a free and confidential professional counselling service through Vitae, one of New Zealand’s most experienced providers of workplace wellbeing services. This is available to anyone in a legal workplace – lawyers and non-lawyers. You can have counselling via phone or videolink as well as face to face.
