In Whangarei, young lawyer Keegan Jones has set up a clinic for people who may need legal help but are unsure where to start. 

Since graduating with a double Bachelor's degree in law and commerce last year, Keegan Jones has established a clinic which follows a Kaupapa Maori approach.

He says it's a service to support whānau who may need a lawyer, don't know how to engage one, or may have difficulty covering the costs.

Keegan Jones says the iwi-based free legal clinic aims to reduce barriers to justice through a te ao Māori lens.
