Time to show off: Law Week

It's that time of year again when the nation's legal profession will brave the cold in open-air expos, walks for justice, and make all effort to show the community what good work it has been doing.

IT'S that time of year again when the nation’s legal profession will brave the cold in open-air expos, walks for justice, and make all effort to show the community what good work it has been doing.

Law Week 2010 kicks off on Monday with a range of free legal events. In New South Wales, an open-air legal expo will be held in Sydney’s Martin Place, where members of the community can talk with major legal service providers, and join judges, lawyers and students in the Walk for Justice along Sydney’s foreshores.

In that state as well, the City of Sydney Library will host a screening of Daryl Dellora’s documentary about Michael Kirby, former High Court Justice, ‘Don’t Forget The Justice Bit’.

Young lawyers will be holding a golden gavel competition, an annual public-speaking event in which young solicitors can showcase their advocacy skills, arguing the case on some far-fetched topic.

In Western Australia, the Hon Chief Justice Wayne Martin will offer an address on access to justice, covering the cost of legal services. In that state as well, the public will have access to a real trial and can wander through the Supreme Court building.

In Victoria, the Hon Chief Justice Marilyn Warren AC will speak at a free public lecture, while the major courts will open their doors for free tours.
