The law turned on social media last night as the Ag Chat network took to Twitter to discuss legal matters important to agricultural communities. Today, Law Week continues this high tech approach to reaching rural and regional Victorians. Deakin University’s video conference forum on the NDIS is simulcast to fourteen locations across the state this morning, truly helping to make Law Week a festival for all Victorians no matter where you live.
Other regional events today are bridging the divide to look at legal services in Albury Wodonga and what it means to live in a cross-border region, while further down the river a session on wills and powers of attorney will be held in Echuca.
For those in Melbourne the ever-popular Great Law Week Debate is back tonight. This year Monash law students and alumni will tackle the topic ‘free speech isn’t free enough in Australia’. Or if dinner and a movie is more your style, head up to Nova Cinemas in Carlton for a screening of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, featuring a live Q&A with the filmmaker.
