Andrew Butler, as convenor of the New Zealand Law Society’s Human Rights and Privacy Committee, has dedicated his time to fostering the broader national dialogue on human rights, devoting many hours to the review of proposed legislation and government policy papers from a human rights perspective.

However, this is far from the full extent of Butler’s pro bono activities; other examples include managing his firm’s long-standing relationship with the Wellington Community Law Centre, and assisting the trans-Tasman charity So They Can in registering as a charitable institution.
