Auckland District Law Society (ADLS)
Auckland District Law Society (ADLS) is an independent membership organisation for New Zealand’s legal profession. We service and support lawyers through all stages of their careers throughout New Zealand.

What we do
Formed in 1879, before the New Zealand Law Society was established, ADLS has been an independent membership organisation for the legal profession for over 140 years. And, while we originally had a focus of servicing Auckland only, we have proudly provided support and resources nationwide for many years now.

We continually strive to connect New Zealand lawyers with tools, training, support, and advocacy so we can collectively strive for excellence.
