Law Week is an annual event held in May across Australia. Law Week’s goal is to promote public understanding of the law and its role in society. Each year in Canberra the Law Society at its partners run a range of events, designed to engage the legal community and the broader community, celebrating and educating the public about the role of lawyers in seeking justice and upholding the rule of law. Law Week events include free lectures, public pro bono events, educational seminars, collegiate functions, and sporting events.
Law Week also raises donations every year for a local Canberra Charity. In past years, we’ve supported such charities as ACT Wildlife, the Domestic Violence Crisis Service, ADACAS, the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre, Food Rescue Service, Pegasus Riding for the Disabled, OzHarvest Canberra, and Arthritis ACT.
Law Week is made possible with the support of our sponsors. LawCover are the principal Law Week sponsor—they have been a longstanding supporter of Law Week, and we thank them for their ongoing sponsorship.
