A tour of Victoria’s courts, tribunals and legal institutions is a great way to get students interested in the law and legal system. If you can’t make the trip to Melbourne, many organisations are happy to visit your school.
You can arrange tours and school visits throughout the year. Special tours and events are also offered during Law Week which takes place in May each year.
