National Law Week 2015 will be held from 11-17 May, to promote public understanding of the law and its role in society. The theme is “Law and Justice in your community”.

Knowing where to obtain information about the law can be an overwhelming experience.

Law Week is about bringing information directly to the public in their local community.

Law Week is aimed at helping people know more about the law, the legal system and how to get answers to common legal problems.
