Over 100 Victorian students attended in-person and online events at the Supreme Court for Victorian Law Week.
Over 100 Victorian students attended in-person and online events at the Supreme Court and heard from judicial officers first-hand about the work of the Court during Victorian Law Week.
During the week the Court hosted six events, in-person and online, with VCE Legal Studies students from eight schools across Victoria participating.
At the Court, students had the opportunity to ask questions and hear from Chief Justice Anne Ferguson, Justice Terry Forrest, Justice Rita Incerti, Justice Melinda Richards, and Justice Andrea Tsalamandris.
Three regional schools attended an online Q&A session. Students met with Justice John Champion, and Justice Jacinta Forbes who gave invaluable insight into their work in the Common Law and Criminal Divisions. The Supreme Court extends a warm thanks to all the students and teachers who participated in the program for Victorian Law Week 2023.
The Court offers onsite and online sessions for VCE Legal Studies students throughout the year in the Court Education Program. Students meet with judges and associates of the Court, explore courtrooms and observe courtroom proceedings.
So far this year, the Supreme Court Education Program has held 36 in-person and online sessions with 50 schools from across Victoria. Find out more about the Court Education Program.
