Functions & Law Week Committee

The Functions & Law Week Committee organises functions to meet the needs of all members of the Society, including ceremonial and social functions held during the year, and the many events run during Law Week. The committee represents a broad cross-section of the Society’s membership (including representatives of the Young Lawyers Committee and the Women Lawyers Association of the ACT).

In 2018-19, the committee began alternating members’ quarterly lunches between venues on the north and south sides of the lake, to make it easier for our southside members to attend. The introduction of a discount for young lawyer members has been a great success in encouraging our younger members to participate in quarterly lunches which provide a significant networking opportunity for all members. Other functions during the year included a dinner to mark the retirement of Magistrate Fryar, regular sporting competitions, several functions during Law Week and Mental Health Week, and the Annual Dinner. The committe holds planning meetings in November each year, to review ongoing functions and the Law Week program, to ensure that events remain relevant to members. 

You can contact the committee directly through the Law Society's Committee Administrator, Tanya Holt, on tanya.holt@actlawsociety.asn.au.
