National Law Week in Australia takes place throughout Australia in May each year. This year, it runs from May 13 – 1. Law Week provides Australians (and visitors) to get a closer look at how law and justice works in each Australian state.
Law Week events in Australia are organized individually or by a group of organizations collaborating to share ideas and resources. Some examples of organizations who participate in and support Law Week include the Courts Administration Authority, law firms, Australian police departments, municipal libraries, community legal centres, legal aid, and the Attorney General’s Department. Usually, Law Week‘s major highlight is Courts Open Day, which provides a chance to explore the rich heritage of the courts. Tours, mock trials, sentencing exercises and meet-the-judge sessions give visitors an insight into court operations and personalities.
Law Week events are aimed at the whole community. These events provide opportunities for people from all walks of life to gain new perspectives on legal and justice issues. These events will be of interest to those who work in legal and justice agencies and students, especially students studying at Australian Law Schools.
About Law Programs in Australia
The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) is an undergraduate law degree. It is designed to equip students for a career in the legal profession. Australian students, like those from virtually all other Commonwealth countries except Canada, can enter the LLB program directly from high school. This is modelled on the system in the U.K. Some Australian universities also offer graduate-entry LLB degrees for those who have already completed a bachelor degree.
Both the Juris Doctor (JD) and the postgraduate Bachelor of Laws are graduate law degrees. They are designed to equip students for a career in the legal profession. Students must have completed an undergraduate degree to be eligible for entry into either one of these programs.
