Find out how VCAT can help you with a range of disputes and guardianship issues, during Law Week 2018 (14-20 May).
Law Week is an annual festival of events that makes learning about the law easy. Presented by Victoria Law Foundation, it offers Victorians the opportunity to find answers to everyday legal issues, go behind the scenes at the courts or get carried away in the drama of the law.
VCAT invites to you join our free Law Week events but please be aware we cannot answer questions about specific cases or give legal advice.
