Many lawyers give their own time to provide free legal information and advice as part Law Week events for their local communities. If you’re a lawyer and you’re looking for a way to get involved, you’ll get some great ideas in this article from one of our major sponsors, Law Institute of Victoria – What’s in it for the profession and the public?
If you’re not involved with a Law Week event (or even if you are), we think Law Week offers you the ultimate ‘take your kids to work’ day.
On Courts Open Day on Saturday 19 May, visitors can explore the Supreme and Magistrates’ Courts, attend Q & A sessions with a judge, and learn more about how the courts operate. They can even tour the Supreme Court dungeons – this is free, but you’ll need to book online.
So go ahead. Take this opportunity to take your family and friends behind the scenes of the legal sector, to learn more about what you do and why its important.
