ACT Law Week is running from the 13-18 May and will feature a variety of different events.
Law Week’s goal is to promote public understanding of the law and its role in society. Law Week events are developed to include people from diverse backgrounds, organisations and perspectives.
Locally, Law Week is sponsored by LawCover, and seeks to raise donations for a Canberra charity. This year, and for the following two years, Law Week is supporting the ACT Law Society Foundation, which is an enduring fund that assists local charities and other worthy causes.
The theme for ACT Law Week 2013 is “Eighty Years of Law and Justice”, which reflects the fact that 2013 is the 80th anniversary of the ACT Law Society.
