Community Opening of the Legal Year – Thank You!

On 5 February, the 2018 Community Opening of the Legal Year was held at Waldron Hall, County Court of Victoria, with over 100 members of the legal and broader community attending.

We were extremely fortunate to have a number of excellent guests speak at this year’s event, including Judge Paul Grant, Lidia Thorpe MP and students from the Skyline Education Foundation. We also had performances from Kutcha Edwards and BottledSnail Productions.

Thank you to all who attended the event. We would also like to thank the following people for their support:
– The Melbourne Lawyers’ Orchestra, for providing music;
– The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, for supplying morning tea;
– The County Court of Victoria, for again allowing ICJ Victoria to use Waldron Hall for the event;
– Dever’s List, the Victoria Law Foundation, and the Law Institute of Victoria, for their support.
