About Law Week

The law is complex and can seem intimidating.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Law Week is an annual festival of events that makes learning about the law easy.

Presented by Victoria Law Foundation with the support of our Event Partners and sponsors, Law Week offers Victorians the opportunity to find answers to their legal questions, gain behind-the-scenes access to the courts and simply enjoy the spectacle of the law.

The program includes information sessions, panel discussions, tours, mock trials, Courts Open Day and much more.

Celebrating Law Week’s 40th anniversary

Law Week will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2020.

From 18 to 24 May 2020, legal, community and educational bodies will deliver a range of exciting and informative events throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The full Law Week 2020 program will be released in late March 2020.
