This full-day program gives final-year VCE students a head start to prepare for Year 12 Legal Studies.

What is Headstart?

Every December, we give final-year VCE Legal Studies students in regional Victoria the opportunity to get a head start on preparing for their exams and coursework. Over the course of a day, school students get to visit their local courthouse, speak to legal professionals and get study tips from our teacher-in-residence. The day is tailored to final-year VCE students, with speakers directly addressing the Year 12 VCE Legal Studies curriculum.

Headstart is held in a different regional location each year and is held in a separate location to our Regional Law Talks to ensure we can reach as many regional students as possible.
