LAW WEEK: 2016

Law Week is a National event, which is celebrated every year by highlighting the role of the law and the legal profession in the community and our daily lives. 

This year, Geraldton Resource Centre hosting the “AMAZING RACE – LAW EDITION” event for the second time. The race will take place on Friday 13thMay.   

We are inviting 10 teams of 4 to register and participate for amazing prizes throughout the Race.  Registration is free and teams can be from a school, workplace, club or just a group of friends or family members. 

During the Race teams will receive information about the law and legal and associated services while having to complete challenging activities in order to progress to the next stage of the Race.  These challenges will take the teams to various local agencies who work within the legal system.  As the teams successfully complete each challenge they will be given clues that will lead them to the next location. 

The Race will officially start at 8:30 am at Maitland Park and, after visiting all agencies involved;it will finish at Edith Cowan Square where the Prize Ceremony and a sausage sizzle will take place.
