This year Law Week begins on the 16th May. Walks for Justice will be held in South Australia, Queensland and, for the first time, Western Australia on Tuesday the 17th. The Walks for Justice have grown each year, allowing more funds to be raised for pro bono referral organisations in these states, and greater competition for the top fund raising teams in each jurisdiction.
The inaugural Law Access Walk for Justice in Perth will begin at 7:30am. Walkers will travel the 4.4 kilometres from the Bell Tower to Point Fraser and back, celebrating at the finish line with a complimentary breakfast at Analakshmi Restaurant on the foreshore. The walk will be led by a group of Event Ambassadors, comprised of members of the judiciary and leaders in the profession – including heads of professional associations and Deans of Law Schools. Prizes for top fundraisers will be awarded at the breakfast, as will a shield for the university team and a cup for the law firm team who raise the most funds, and rewards for the highest fundraising individual and individual student. Registration is free through Everyday Hero.
