Western Australia's Law Week is fast approaching, with new events and seminars for the legal profession. 

Law Week brings would-be lawyers, students, leading professionals, long-practising lawyers, judges, barristers and the general public together in a Law Society of Western Australia drive to promote law and justice in the community. 

This year’s Western Australia Law Week, which runs from 14 to 18 September, will include seminars on Aboriginal Reconciliation, artist rights and copyright, online and film law issues for the arts, migration, and pro bono relationships (workshop and panel discussion). 

The long-running debate on legal attire - whether it’s justified or just old hat - will be explored. 

Law Week also coincides with the Lawyer of the Year Awards, for both practitioners with more than five years experience and practitioners with less than five years experience. 

The awards nominees are chosen by members of the profession on the basis of their contribution to the profession in the past year for each of the relevant awards.  

The official opening will be made by chief justice, Wayne Martin, with special guests including state attorney-general, Christian Porter, WA Bar Association president, Craig Colvin SC and Law Society of Western Australia president Dudley Stow at the Supreme Court of Western Australia on 14 September.
