How to get involved

COVID-19 UPDATE: We’re running Law Week a bit differently and we’d like you to be part of it

We believe that, now, more than ever, people need access to vital information about their legal rights and responsibilities. 

Due to the ever-changing situation, we are looking at ways to run events that don’t require face-to-face contact. Whether self isolating, quarantined or social distancing, there are many options for getting your message out there to those who need it.

How do I get started?

First, identify the information you want to share and who you want to share it with. Is your target audience tech savvy enough for a livestream? Or would they be more comfortable chatting over the phone? Use this to inform how you shape your delivery.

Second, think about the best way you can connect with your audience. There are lots of different forms this could take: you may hold telephone or Skype consultations, livestream a panel discussion, pre-record an interview, write an informative guide, or something else entirely.

Check out some suggestions about new ways to deliver Law Week events or get in touch to chat about your ideas. We look forward to helping you bring your ideas to light.

What support will I receive?

Victoria Law Foundation is responsible for curating the program and promoting Law Week to the community. We coordinate the advertising, publicity, social media campaigns, and branding of the festival itself.

While event partners are responsible for planning, marketing and delivering their events, we are committed to making your event a success and we provide you with the resources to help you do so. We promote every event through our website and our Your Law Victoria Facebook account.

Contact us if you would like more information on how we can support you.

So you’re thinking of running a Law Week event – that’s fantastic!

Running a Law Week event is a great way to connect with your local community. It’s a chance to help people learn more about our law and understand how it affects their everyday lives.

We welcome all types of organisations to run events. Our event partners include community legal centres, private law firms, government organisations, courts, libraries, councils, educational institutions, community organisations, entertainers, tour operators and more.

On this page you’ll find some basic information about running a Law Week event. We’d love to have you on board so please feel free to contact us with any questions about your event plans.

How do I get started?

First things first, you need an event idea!

Law Week events come in all shapes and sizes – from small pop-up stalls in libraries to presentations in theatres. Our program typically includes information sessions, panel discussions, legal health checks, webinars, mock trials, debates, open days, exhibitions and much more. Find the format that works best for your organisation.

For your event to be accepted into program it must be law-related and open to the general public. We also encourage events to be free or low cost.

Our new ways to deliver Law Week events guide provides a great starting point for planning your event.
