Am I eligible to join?

Memberships are available to any lawyer currently working in New Zealand in the conduct of criminal defence work (e.g. PDS lawyer, private bar defence lawyer, law clerk, duty solicitors, have a mixed practice but conduct defence work). 

By applying to be a member you are certifying that you are not a prosecutor. Prosecutors are not eligible to become Te Matakahi members nor to participate in Te Matakahi CLE events, nor to purchase its educational products. 

If you wish to become a member but are part of a Crown panel, you may complete the application form, but specify that you are part of a Crown panel and your membership application will be considered.

Te Matakahi reserves the right to decline any applications for membership if the membership criteria is not met. In the event that your application is declined, we will contact you to arrange a refund of the membership fee.
