You CAN handle the truth

Law. What is it good for? Well, if you believe what you see on TV, it’s good for stressed people with laptops solving crimes. In real life, there’s a lot more to it than that.

There's a lot more to the law than you see on TVThis year, Law Week is all about challenging myths and misconceptions about the law and the legal system and encouraging Victorians to think differently about the role of the law in our community.

Have you ever spoken to a judge? Did you know there is a dungeon under the Supreme Court of Victoria? Are you aware of the risks faced by human rights lawyers in volatile areas of the globe?

Law Week is your chance to go behind the scenes of the legal system in Victoria, get free legal information and services, take part in debates and discussions about legal and human rights issues, and speak to prominent legal practitioners.

The 2012 Law Week calendar is bursting with exciting and thought-provoking events that are mostly free to attend – and you can find out about them here, on our brand new blog.

We’re also on Facebook and Twitter. Check out our calendar here.
