Welcome to our Law Week brand for 2016

You know Law Week is not too far away when we launch our brand for the year. With only just over two months until the start of Law Week on 16 May, we are about to start our promotional campaign in earnest.

This year's brand plays on the idea of exploring and navigating the maze of the legal system to solve your legal problem.

Soon you will see the brand rolled out across the Law Week website and, closer to Law Week, on street banners and at the Festival Hub in Federation Square. As we say, we hope the brand will help you 'find your way' to the biggest and best community legal education event of the year.
