Does your activity meet our event criteria?

To be accepted into the Victorian Law Week program, your event must meet our criteria. Events must:

  • Take place within Victoria
  • Improve the Victorian community’s understanding of the law or the legal system
  • Be designed for individuals or small businesses
  • Be free of charge
  • Not be invitation only.

Interested in running an invitation only event? While we can’t include it in the public program, we may be able to provide you with support. Contact us to find out more.

Please note that the following activities do not meet our criteria:

  • Events where the primary audience is people working in the legal sector.
  • Events about recruitment and career progression in the law. If you are interested in running an event for students about legal careers, we suggest that you contact the Victorian Commercial Teachers’ Association. They may be able to advertise your event on their online noticeboard for secondary school teachers.
  • Events only open to people employed at a specific workplace.

You will be notified if your event is not suitable for inclusion in the program.

Are you offering free legal advice consultations?

To be accepted into the Victorian Law Week program, appointments must be at least 40 minutes in duration. When determining appointment duration, please allow sufficient time to obtain instructions and provide meaningful preliminary information or advice during the appointment.

Register your event or activity by close of business Friday 18 March 2022.

In this section we’d like to know what you’re hoping to get out of your event and who you’re running it for. Your answers will inform:

  • How you develop and deliver your event
  • How we promote your event through official Victorian Law Week channels.

Before completing this section please read our guide on setting the purpose and target audience for your event.

Why are you running your event? What will attendees learn about the law or the legal system by attending your event? How will the event address your audience’s legal problems/questions? For more information read our guide on setting the purpose and target audience for your event.

Your event will be more effective if it is targeted to a specific group, and tailored to that group’s needs and capabilities. Who do you want to talk to? Who needs to know the information you are sharing? Who will be interested in attending your event? Be specific.

For more information read our guide on setting the purpose and target audience for your event.

Please note: If your primary audience is high school and/or university students, your event will be included in the dedicated students’ program on the Victorian Law Week website. It will not be listed in the general program.

How will you let your target audience know about your event? While your event will be listed on the Victorian Law Week website and receive a promoted post on social media, you will be responsible for all other marketing.

In this section we’d like to know more about your event. This information will be displayed on the Victorian Law Week website - you can see a preview at the bottom of the page.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Your event title should be catchy and easy to understand at a glance.
  • Consider your target audience when describing your event. Is the language appropriate? What will make them want to attend your event? Does your event sound enticing?
  • Make sure you use terminology that your target audience understands. For example, the term ‘elder abuse’ may be understood by aged care workers, but not necessarily by older people themselves.
  • Consider the accessibility of your language. It’s easy to assume that the language you use every day is generally understood, but that’s not always the case. For example, ‘family law’ is an industry term, while words such as ‘divorce’ or ‘relationship breakdown’ are much more easily understood by much of the community.

Please note: Your marketing blurbs may be edited for clarity and/or to conform with Victorian Law Week style, and we may contact you if we have concerns about the effectiveness of your event title.
