ACT Law Week moseys into town

By Barcham - 10 May 2013 9

It has been 80 years since the ACT Law Society rode into Canberra on horseback and tamed this anarchic and criminal city*, and now we get to celebrate with ACT Law Week!

The ACT Attorney-General, Mr Simon Corbell MLA, will officially launch ACT Law Week at a special lunch which will feature the ACT Golden Gavel speaking competition. The lunch will be held at 12.30pm Monday 13 May 2013, at Teatro Vivaldi in the ANU Arts Centre.

This year Law Week in Canberra celebrates Eighty Years of Law and Justice in Canberra’s Centenary year, reflecting the fact that 2013 is the 80th anniversary of the ACT Law Society.

ACT Law Week is part of an annual national event held in May across Australia. Law Week aims to promote public understanding of the law and its role in society, with events developed to include people from diverse backgrounds, organisations and perspectives.

In Canberra, Law Week is organised by the ACT Law Society and is sponsored by LawCover. Each year, the events held during Law Week seek to raise funds for a local 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 will assist local charities and other worthy causes.

There are a bunch of events on which you can check out on the website.

*May not of actually happened like that.

Actually I think that LSWCHP’s preferred ammunition of choice probably includes Lead Semi Wad Cutter Hollow Points. The preferred projectile of choice for older lawmen.

Correct. As I mentioned recently elsewhere, they’re old fashioned but good.

If I had my druthers, as they say in Texas, I would…oh…I dunno…set all lawyers on fire. I’m sure the world would be a better place once they’d stopped smoldering.

Dick: The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.

Cade: Nay, that I mean to do.

I suspect The Bard must have (or “of”, what the hell, I don’t care any more because it’s probably a lost cause) had an experience with lawyers similar to mine at some stage of his life.

That little gripe aside, I’d just like to say that I got divorced ten years ago, and from that shattering, horrific, bleak and enormously unjust experience where I was bent over and reamed mightily and repeatedly by lawyers of all varieties, I have concluded that there may be law in Canberra, but there is certainly no justice.

I hear you, brother.

It’s “have” mate. May not “have” actually happened. The misuse of “of” in that sense is clear evidence of the end of western civilisation, so we need to do the best we can to hold back the barbarian tides.

Ah what is this thing called justice that you speak of? Surely you’d prefer to line ’em up and let fly with a volley of full metal jacket.

As for Barcham’s grammar, we’ll need to forgive him for taking artistic licence,yet again 🙂

Can you imagine a world without lawyers? Eugh.
