How to get involved in Law Reform

Appointments are made to the New Zealand Law Society Law Reform Committee and its specialist committees biennially. Being part of these committees allows you to play an important role in law reform and is an excellent basis for professional development as well as collegiality and networking.

Applications now open

Applications for membership are open now. All applications must be submitted to the Law Society by 5pm, Friday 23 July 2021.

We are now calling for applications from members and associate members interested in serving on the Law Society’s Law Reform Committee or one of its specialist committees.

Law Society committee membership is a great way to get involved and have your say on law reform issues. It is also an excellent basis for professional development as well as collegiality and networking.

The Law Society wants to hear from lawyers who have expertise and experience in a relevant area of law and who are:

  • willing to volunteer their time and expertise for the benefit of the profession and the wider community;
