Government Legal Services Strategy | Te Rautaki Ratonga Ā-Ture A Te Kāwanatanga

This is the first strategy to look at how the Government Legal Network (GLN) can enhance the delivery of legal services to the government.

It sets out the direction of travel for the delivery of legal services by the GLN to government for the next five years, establishing the important areas of focus to ensure we deliver effective services. Work in the past decade has developed the network of government lawyers into the GLN we have today. This strategy identifies key areas of focus to further develop the services, and the capability of the GLN to deliver them.

It is our blueprint for the next five years.

Justice Sector Long-term Insights Briefing

Crown Law, Ara Poutama Aotearoa, Ministry of Justice, Oranga Tamariki and the Serious Fraud Office, with New Zealand Police, have collaborated on a justice sector long-term insights briefing on the topic ‘Long-term insights on imprisonment 1960 to 2050
