Always seek the right legal advice and representation

Law Week is a national initiative that runs annually to raise public awareness of the law and navigating the legal system.

In the ACT, events will be on from May 10 to May 15.

As the ACT Law Society states on its website, "Each year in Canberra the Law Society and its partners run a range of events to celebrate and engage the local legal profession, and to educate the public about the role of lawyers in our society."

Additionally, in conjunction with the ACT Law Society Foundation, each year Law Week is also used to raise money for a local Canberra charity.

"In 2021, ACT Law Week is supporting Raw Potential Canberra, a charity which empowers disadvantaged youth by providing non-judgemental support and opportunities for a bright future," the society said.

The ACT's 2021 Law Week launch is scheduled for the evening of Monday May 10 and it's been so popular that tickets have sold out.

"Attorney-General Mr Shane Rattenbury MLA will officially open Law Week 2021 before ceding the stage to Canberra's most erudite young lawyers, who will compete in the ACT Golden Gavel speaking competition," ACT Law Society's overview stated.

This public speaking competition is an annual part of the proceedings, and the winners go on to compete at the National Golden Gavel event.

"The competition is an opportunity for young lawyers to showcase their advocacy and comedy skills, with each given five minutes to argue their case on a far-fetched topic, revealed only 24 hours beforehand," the society stated.

Other events will also be on through Law Week, and all will be strictly adhering to COVID-safe practices.
