Law Week 2019 | A Focus on Law and Justice in the Community | #LawyersMakeaDifference
Law Week 2019 (Monday, 13 May to Friday, 17 May) brought the legal profession and public together with a focus on law and justice in the community. Over 40 Law Week events were held across Western Australia, including in regional areas such as Kalgoorlie, Geraldton, Albany and Bunbury.
The Law Society’s new #LawyersMakeADifference campaign was launched during Law Week, aiming to communicate with the wider public, break down stereotypes and tell powerful, positive stories of real lawyers and their important work in the community. You can continue to follow the campaign on the Law Society’s Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. Use #LawyersMakeaDifference on social media to share your own examples of ways lawyers are making a difference in your community.
