Law Week 2018 Launch on the Border

We’re delighted to welcome Victorian Ombudsman Deborah Glass OBE as our special guest to launch Law week on the Border. It’s a privilege to have Ms Glass visit our area and talk about her passion for the law, the independence of her role and the importance of justice for people and communities.

Hume Riverina Community Legal Service is holding a Law Week launch to bring together people from both sides of the Border who are involved in the legal profession, or have an interest in law and justice. This is also a fantastic opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues to enjoy a few nibbles and a chat after hearing the talk from Ms Glass. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

The Law Week launch is open to the public, so you are welcome to spread the word throughout your networks to anyone you think might be interested in attending.

Please register at Eventbrite – just follow the link.

For all queries, including dietary requirements or special requests, please contact Simon Crase via email or phone – 0488 792 366.
