Victorian Law Week has a program of community events and activities that makes learning about the law easy.

It is designed to help Victorians understand their rights, find answers to their questions, know what help is available and how our legal system works.

The program is managed by the Victoria Law Foundation, with events and activities run by a range of organisations, including community legal centres, government bodies, community organisations, law firms, courts and tribunals, and more.

In Echuca and Rochester, a free session will be held to help people learn about wills and powers of attorney.

If you are thinking about your future, it’s time to start looking at the legal documents you might need to protect yourself and your loved ones.

In this session, learn about wills, powers of attorney and other legal documents you can put in place now to protect your assets and ensure your decisions are made by people you trust.

The in-person session is run by legal firm Dawes and Vary Riordan Lawyers.

The Echuca session will be held at Echuca Hotel in High St on Monday, May 16 from 6pm to 7pm.

The Rochester session will be held at the Shamrock Hotel in Gillies St on Wednesday, May 18 from 6pm to 7pm.

Bookings are essential for both the Echuca and Rochester sessions and can be made by phoning 5484 1800 or emailing JMoyle@drvlawyers.com.au
