Be part of Victorian Law Week

Information to help you register your Victorian Law Week 2024 event.

Register to be part of Victorian Law Week

Registering your event means you will:

  • be part of Victorian Law Week
  • have your event in the 2024 program
  • be eligible for help to promote your event.

The information you provide in the registration form will help us create your event program listing and promotional collateral.

Before you begin

To complete the registration form you’ll need to have a pretty good idea of who your event is for and what your event is going to provide.

Remember to:

Registration checklist

Below is a checklist of everything you’ll need to complete our registration form.

  • be designed for individuals or small businesses
  • be open to the public.

The full event criteria can be found on the get ready page.

Event blurb

This information will be displayed on your event listing in the program and in promotional material. The blurb contains your event name, description and the learning outcomes of your event.

When writing, consider your target audience, including appropriate language and what will make them want to attend your event.

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.

We might edit your blurb for clarity. We’ll let you know if we do this.

Event name (3 - 5 words)

Make your event name short, sharp, 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.

Event description (100 words)

Tell us about your event and the people you are running it for. A sentence or two describing the purpose of your event and the value for people in attending.

Learning outcomes

What will attendees learn about the law or the legal system by attending your event?

Provide three-dot points outlining the learning or educational outcomes for people attending the event. This helps when thinking about the impact of the event in helping people to understand and access the law.
