Victorian Law Week is a program of community events and activities that makes learning about the law easy.
Across the state, events are designed to help Victorians understand their rights, find answers to their questions, know what help is available and how our legal system works.
The program is managed by Victoria Law Foundation, with events and activities run by a range of organisations, including community legal centres, government bodies, community organisations, law firms, courts and tribunals – and many more.
Running a Victorian Law Week activity is a great way to connect with your local community, and deliver valuable and accessible information.
A Victorian Law Week activity can be as simple as a drop-in information stand at your local neighbourhood house or library, informal question-and-answer session, obligation-free 40-minute legal consultations or a webinar on a relevant legal topic.
It is not a CPD program, careers expo, award ceremony or an ‘industry thing’ but it is an opportunity for you to share your knowledge, profile your organisation, and increase awareness of your brand.
They may be able to be included in the program if they are scheduled during Victorian Law Week, so that you can benefit from the increased profile.
