Rub shoulders with some of Victoria’s key legal minds and network with people from across the sector . Breakfast is provided by local restaurants and you can grab a coffee from one of the many surrounding cafes.
Who can attend?
The Legal Laneway Breakfast is open to all members of Victoria’s legal community, though it has a focus on community and public sector law.
Our 2020 Legal Laneway Breakfast was a success
Our 17th Annual Legal Laneway Breakfast brought together Victoria's diverse legal sector to celebrate the start of the legal year.
Proceeds go towards a good cause
Each Legal Laneway Breakfast, we hold a raffle to support a local community organisation.
All proceeds raised in our raffle will go to The Torch.
The Torch provides support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria through art, cultural and arts vocational programs. By embracing program participants as artists rather than offenders, The Torch provides an avenue to change.
The Torch employs Indigenous Arts Officers to deliver the Program to Indigenous men and women in Victorian prisons and to support participants who are transitioning back into the community.
This program aims to reduce the rate of reoffending by encouraging participants to explore identity and culture through art, develop confidence and define new pathways for themselves upon release from prison.
