Law Week is presented by Victoria Law Foundation and features more than 150 events, including mock trials, behind-the-scenes tours, expert information sessions and panel forums. Law Week events provide a unique opportunity to demystify the law.

This year Victoria Legal Aid is a Law Week sponsor. We encourage Victorians to take up the opportunity to find answers to legal questions, discover the history of the courts and to learn about the law.
