I received an email from Shelley Brown, Reference Librarian of New Westminster Public Library:
I was looking at older postings on the LawMatters Blog and I saw your mention of the Legal Information Access Centre in NSW, Aus. I was wondering if you were familiar with the Citizen’s Advice Bureaux in New Zealand? Often they’re housed in libraries and are a very useful way of making legal information available to the public.
Hope this information is useful!
Apparently the Citizen’s Advice Bureaux are run mostly with volunteers, and are an independent social service with a variety of funders, and use a similar model to those in England and Australia. They seem to be a good way to get legal information out to rural as well as urban centres. Thanks for the reference, Shelley!
