Description of your event

This information will be displayed on your event listing in the program and in promotional material.

Victorian Law Week theme

This year, we are developing our program into some general everyday law themes. Let us know which theme your topic fits best into or if it is unique add some extra detail.

Our themes for 2023 are:

  • House and home
  • Consumer goods and services
  • Rights, infringements, entitlements
  • Family and relationships
  • Learning about the legal sector
Event title

Make your event catchy and easy to understand. Make sure you use terminology that your target audience understands. For example, the term ‘elder abuse’ may be understood by aged care workers, but not necessarily by older people themselves.

We might adjust your event name if we think it’ll encourage more people to come to your event. We’ll let you know if we do this.

Event description (150 words max)

Tell us about your event and the people you are running it for. What will attendees learn about the law or the legal system by attending your event? We might edit your blurb for clarity. We’ll let you know if we do this.

When writing your blurb, it helps to consider your target audience:

  • Is the language appropriate?
  • What will make them want to attend your event?
  • Does your event sound enticing?

Consider your choice of words. It’s easy to assume that the language you use every day is generally understood, but that’s not always the case. For example, ‘family law’ is an industry term, while words such as ‘divorce’ or ‘relationship breakdown’ are much more easily understood by much of the community.
