We are delighted to make Law Week Law Talks 2016 available to Legal Studies teachers and students across Victoria via this film of the event prepared by our Law Week Law Talks partner, the Centre for Innovative Justice – RMIT University. Law Week Law Talks is part of our Metropolitan Law Talks program, and is an interactive, one-day program that engages young people with the law and their legal system. Metropolitan Law Talks is free, and the aim is to bring the law to life for Year 12 VCE Legal Studies students. The program includes a range of dynamic presentations delivered by senior members of the judiciary and practitioners and leaders of key legal bodies, as well as a session on how to succeed with Legal Studies assessment tasks and the exam. The presentations relate directly to the Legal Studies curriculum.
