Victorian Law Week has wrapped up for another year!
We are proud to wrap up an amazing program of over 190 events across a range of topics that made learning about the law easy.
Across the week, we were thrilled to see thousands of people tune in, participate online, or attend events in person across Melbourne and regional Victoria.
We hope you found something valuable.
