A five-year-old-boy balanced on his father’s shoulders in the long queue outside the Supreme Court last year told Law Week staff that he was “going to go to jail”. His Dad grinned up at him. “Better than that”, he said, “You’re going to a dungeon”.
Mum, apparently, was off at one of the information sessions. Possibly doing a tour of a court, possibly asking questions of a real-life Supreme Court judge.
Law Week is always difficult to categorize. There really is something for everyone.
This year, there’s a Sisters in Crime discussion between former Police Chief Commissioner Christine Nixon and her former Assistant Commissioner Sandra Nicholson. There’s a session on protecting copyright for craft. There’s even a rumour that there’s going to be a comedy night.
So how do you know if something’s for you? Keep your eye on this page and on our Twitter and Facebook pages in the next few weeks. We’ll be highlighting feature events from our Law Week calendar so you’ll have enough time to book for the things that might interest you. That five-year-old kid’s dad? He booked. Getting into jail just isn’t as easy as it used to be.
