Many problems in our lives can have legal answers

Housing is a big issue and it carries rights and responsibilities, whether you own or rent your home.  

Understanding our legal system can help you navigate problems at home and help you find solutions.

Victorian Law Week is an opportunity to identify where the law can help with these and many other common problems.

Whether it’s a webinar to help navigate contract issues, delays, disputes and claims, an in-person session to help you use the law to make your home mould free, or a discussion on lodging public housing complaints, there’s an event that could help you.

Solving problems with your house and home

Meet the Victorian Ombudsman

Victorian Law Week is supported by the Victorian Ombudsman.

The Office of the Victorian Ombudsman promotes fairness, integrity and respect for human rights. It holds the Victorian public sector accountable to the people of Victoria using a range of functions and powers, including the investigation of administrative actions in the Victorian public sector and matters that might be referred to it by the Victorian Parliament.
