COVID-19 and the Law digital resource

Rapid development and launch of digital information to provide plain English information on legal rights during COVID-19.

About the project

Many areas of law were impacted by the government’s response to COVID-19. Community Law identified the need to rapidly provide user-friendly COVID specific, legal information for everyday people. Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley worked with Citizen AI to develop a dynamic digital interface on the website providing interactive information in the form of  frequently asked questions and answers about COVID-19 and the law.
