Sports show on wheels
A GROUP of elite wheelchair athletes launched National Law Week at the Coffs Harbour Education Campus with the Arrive Alive Wheelchair Sports Roadshow.
The show included a road safety presentation, with topics covering how to identify and avoid risky situations on the road, and how being injured in an accident can have serious ongoing physical and mental consequences.
Representatives from the local courts, the police and legal profession answered questions from the audience, and the athletes gave a wheelchair basketball demonstration.
The Coffs Harbour City Library will also hold Law Week events.
On Wednesday, May 18, from 3.30pm, a video called 'Secrets of the Jury' will be screened, demonstrating the workings of the jury system through the drama of a young man accused of killing his terminally-ill lover.
After the screening, court registrar Aldo Loprele will talk about the video and the NSW court system.
On Thursday, May 19, from 1pm, Sandra Lew will give a free talk on family law, with special regard to children.
So if you've always wanted to find out what juries get up to behind closed doors, and how family law works, don't miss these events. Bookings are not required.
