Sue Moroney named Community Law Centres chief

Sue Moroney has been named the chief executive officer of Community Law Centres o Aotearoa.

She started in her new role on Monday, succeeding Liz Tennet, who was the first CEO of the organisation.

The 54-year-old former Labour MP did not stand for re-election last year. She is a former journalist and served as MP representing Hamilton and Waikato for 12 years.

Moroney takes the helm of an organisation overseeing 24 community law centres that provide free legal help and advice for people who are unable to pay for private lawyers or do not have access to legal aid.

Community Law Centres o Aotearoa has about 170 staff who are supported by more than 1,200 volunteer lawyers.
