Power saves community law centres

The NZ Herald reports:

The Government has rescued about 120 jobs in community law centres that were threatened by a collapse in revenue from lawyers’ trust funds.

Justice Minister Simon Power received an emotional standing ovation from staff of the 27 law centres when he told their annual meeting that he would maintain their funding in the year starting in July at the same level as in the current year, around $11 million.

Speaks for itself. I think community law centres do a wonderful job so don’t mind the temporary assistance. It is important that people are able to understand their rights under the law.
