Law Week is an annual, national event which aims to foster a better understanding of the role law and justice plays in our society. In 2018, it will be held from Monday 14 to Sunday 20 May.
We are in the process of finalising our 2018 plans. We’re working on a great program again this year. Keep an eye on this website, follow us on socials or email us to get all the latest news or to get involved with Law Week 2018.
We encourage law and justice organisations to coordinate events to celebrate Law Week. Our events calendar will be coming soon to promote events around the state – so get planning, and if you have any questions reach out to us through our social media accounts or the email address listed above.
In 2016, we introduced a new Law Week initiative, Justice Journeys. It was incredibly popular in its first year and even more so in 2017. It provided Queensland students with a unique opportunity to job shadow various professionals in the justice system.
In 2017, we had 270 nominations from students across Queensland applying to participate. Students were placed in a variety of roles across the justice sector. As part of the experience, they shared their Justice Journeys alongside stories from our staff. These Justice Journeys are a unique insight into careers and the people within the justice sector. You can still visit Justice Journeys from the past two years and explore what our students and staff had to share.
Law Week 2017 also included a huge LawRight fundraising walk in Brisbane and a number of other events across Queensland including courthouse tours and justice sector displays.
