The Law Society of Western Australia will be formally presented with a grant certificate by Lotterywest next month. The ceremony will take place at the Old Court House Law Museum in Perth on Tuesday, 12 April 2016 at around 11.15am.
Eleni Evangel MLA, the Member for Perth, will present the grant certificate to Elizabeth Needham, President of the Law Society. Volunteers from the City of Perth’s iCity Tours will also be in attendance to experience the Museum and a trial re-enactment.
The grant will enable the Law Society to complete the re-design of the Old Court House Law Museum with the installation of the exhibition entitled From Past to Present: the Changing Face of the Law, and an update to the entrance of the Museum.
The Law Society thanks Lotterywest for its generous grant, and the Lotterywest retailers who sell the games, thereby raising the revenue to make grants such as this possible.
The Old Court House Law Museum is one of only a few law museums in the world. It is housed in the City of Perth’s oldest building, constructed in 1836. The Museum’s interpretive displays are accompanied by an audio overview and take visitors on a journey through Western Australia’s legal and social history.
The Museum is located in Stirling Gardens, on the corner of Barrack Street and St Georges Terrace, Perth, next to the Supreme Court of Western Australia.
Members of the media are invited to attend. Photo opportunities will be available. To register your attendance, please reply with your name, media organisation and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
