Making law accessible

FOR one week a year, the law profession opens its doors to the community, providing a range of activities and services not usually accessible to the person on the street.

Besides the usual free legal advice booths in the city, and country areas as far as Moora and Northam, there are free mediations, free specialist family lawyers available, trial re-enactments, court open days, seminars, workshops and hypotheticals.

Everyone has the opportunity to attend seminars on pertinent topics such as Environmental Law in Australia, Present Past and Future with speakers Tim Bonyhardy, Michael Barker QC and Dr Judy Edwards MLA.

Sir Ronald Wilson will officially launch the report into Justice and People with Disabilities. With this as one of the main themes of the week, there will be workshops on topical issues such as how to create websites that are accessible to the disabled.

The week will start with a large number of the profession attending a church service. Later in the week there is a three kilometre fun run and, on an adversarial note, on Friday evening, the young lawyers have organised a Battle of the Bands at the Fly by Nite Club.

Information on any of the above can be obtained from the Law Week Co-ordinator on 9388 1474.
