Now, more than ever, people need access to vital information about their legal rights and responsibilities
This year has been difficult for the Victorian community. From the horrors of the bushfires to the ongoing health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, our community is grappling with new and complicated situations.
As legal professionals, your advice and expertise has never been more important.
There are many legal issues emerging from these crises, and the public needs help understanding their rights and responsibilities. Key areas of legal need include:
- Small business management
- Rent and mortgage payments
- Parenting agreements and child support payments
- Wills and estate planning
- Powers of attorney
- Termination of employment and stand downs
- And much, much more.
How you can help
You can greatly help your community this Law Week by providing advice and information about your area of expertise.
Law Week events will be conducted remotely this year, in keeping with government directives and recommendations. There are many ways to run an event remotely – you may wish to offer free half-hour phone consultations, deliver an online presentation, create an audio recording about a topical issue, write a guide that addresses your most-asked questions that can be emailed on request, or something else entirely.
How we will support you
Victoria Law Foundation can help you to develop your event concept and decide on the most appropriate format for your event.
We are 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.
We are committed to making your event a success and are happy to provide you with the resources to do so. We can provide you with advice about marketing your event and media engagement – and we promote every event on our website and through the Your Law Victoria Facebook account.
