Covid 19 Support

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

We have gathered a mix of help sheets and general information to help and will continue to add to these. 

 Kate Davenport QC has also a support page in which she will tell you about developments and what we are doing.

W will send out updates and social media alerts to keep you up to date. If don't already do so, please follow us on Twitter and on LinkedIn.


This section of the NZBA website focusses on resources to help and educate members so that they can:

  1. Identify issues that are impacting on them negatively;
  2. Understand that these negative impacts will affect their competence as lawyers as well as their personal lives;
  3. Seek help without concern about any stigma attaching to asking for help;
  4. Find resources, tips and techniques that may provide insight on how to resolve problems.
