Law Week 2017

Justice Journeys have been incredibly popular since they were introduced to Law Week two years ago.

Justice Journeys provide Queensland students with a unique opportunity to job shadow various professionals in the justice system.

In 2017, 270 students from across Queensland applied to participate. Successful students were placed in a variety of roles, gaining a unique insight into the careers and people involved in the justice sector. As part of the experience, they shared their Justice Journeys alongside stories from our staff. You can explore what students learned in their Justice Journeys and read some of the interesting stories from our staff.

Law Week in Queensland also includes a huge fundraising walk in Brisbane for LawRight, as well as events statewide including courthouse tours and justice sector displays.
