Law Week 13–19 May 2019

Law Week is an annual, national event which aims to foster a better understanding of the role law and justice plays in our society.

In 2019, it will take place from Monday 13 May to Sunday 19 May.

What we're doing

We're running a campaign to educate Queenslanders of all ages about new laws covering image-based abuse.

The Criminal Code (Non-consensual Sharing of Intimate Images) Amendment Act 2018 amended Queensland’s Criminal Code to address the growing issue of the distribution of intimate images without a person’s consent. This form of abuse has grown along with developments in modern technology, particularly for young people, but the effect on victims can be devastating. People of all ages need to know that sharing intimate images without consent is a crime, and this campaign aims to raise awareness of that fact.

The campaign has featured on a number of media outlets, and we’d love you to join us in spreading the word by liking and sharing our social posts with your followers.
