New Zealand Law Society President Kathryn Beck has sent a message to New Zealand's lawyers following the attacks on Christchurch mosques.

Ms Beck's message is as follows:

Kia ora koutou,

As a community, we all share a sense of horror and disbelief at the events that unfolded in Christchurch on Friday. 

As a profession, we also need to consider how we address a tragedy of this scale with our colleagues who may be having to deal with some of the distressing details of the attack. 

I urge the profession to come together, and work together, as a strong, caring and inclusive community. I am sure you will join me in expressing our deepest condolences and solidarity with the families, friends and communities suffering so deeply in the wake of this national tragedy.

Ngā mihi / kind regards
Kathryn Beck.
