Let the myth-busting begin

Well, this is it. Whatever you thought you knew about the law: forget it. We’re starting from scratch.

Law Week 2012 starts today and our program deliberately challenges common misconceptions about the legal system and encourages you to think differently about the law.

Photo from Even Girls Play Footy documentaryExploding the myth of the impenetrable legal system is the entertaining and inspiring documentary Even Girls Play Footy, which premiers this evening at ACMI. Even Girls Play Footy is the true story of what happens when three fourteen-year-old girls take on the legal system and fight for their right to do what they love.

Tonight at 6:30pm. Book here.

Also today at the Old Treasury Building Museum in Spring Street is a creepy reminder of Melbourne’s violent past. An exhibition that trawls the archives for home-grown criminals, Criminals covers the notorious Squizzy Taylor, Mr Colin Ross, and a photographic lineup of women criminals as part of the Victorian Archival Treasures collection. If you thought you knew about gang wars, think again.

Today from 10am – 4pm. Enquiries here.

See the rest of our program for more Law Week events. Please take note of the booking information – some events are selling out.
