Did you know your law library also supports community groups to learn about the law?

SCLQ image library collection, 2021.

In addition to the range of legal information services we provide you as your law library, we also facilitate a diverse education program that aims to foster the wider community’s greater familiarity with, and understanding of, the role of courts in Queensland’s legal system.

If you know of a community group that would like to learn more about the law, let them know about our free programs today.

For many members of the community, courts are unfamiliar environments, potentially associated with past interactions that revive memories of distressing or uncomfortable experiences.

Our free education program aims to provide opportunities for those outside the legal profession to explore and expand their understanding of the Queensland court system in a safe and supportive environment.

Guided by specialist educators, our programs allow members of the community to:

  • experience a guided group tour of the library and explore the public art and architectural features of the award-winning Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law building (45-minute tour)
  • learn about our legal system with an immersive group talk on the trial and sentencing process (one-hour talk)
  • view cases to discover the legal system in action (any duration)
  • explore a range of diverse exhibitions and displays that highlight significant past and present events, persons and developments that have shaped our community (30-minute guided group tour, or can be explored independently)
  • build confidence in accessing basic legal information (one-hour group talk, in person or online).

Our programs are designed for all ages, can accommodate group sizes of five to 40 people and run Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm. No knowledge of the law or legal system is required – only curiosity and a love of learning!
