Submit your event

You’re filling out this form to register your event. Once we’ve reviewed it, your event will appear in our online program. (We’ll let you know when it’s up.)

Before you begin

To complete this form, you’ll need to have a pretty good idea of what your event is going to entail. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to use our checklist to prepare.

Also, you can preview this form by clicking on each step above.

At any point, you can click ‘next’ or ‘previous’ without losing the answers you’ve already provided.

When you’re ready, let’s get started.

First up...

Please check that your event meets our criteria:

Events must...

  • Be local: Your event must take place within Victoria.
  • Help with a legal issue: It needs to improve the Victorian community’s understanding of the law or the legal system. Your event can’t have a primary focus of recruitment and career progression in the law.
  • Be for ‘everyday’ people: Victorian Law Week events must be designed for individuals or small businesses. Events where the primary audience is people working in the legal sector are not suitable.
  • Be free of charge: You can require bookings, but attendance must be free.
  • Be open to the public: Your event must be open to everyone. That is, not ‘invitation only’ or only open to people employed at a specific workplace.

*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.

I have read and accept the privacy statement.

Please provide details of the primary contact for this event application. All communications about Victorian Law Week will be directed to this person.

We’d like to know a bit about your event and the people you’re running it for.

Ask yourself...

  • 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?

We’d like to get an idea of the people your event is designed for.

*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.
