Unlock your Law on Saturday 18 May.

Hundreds of Victorians are expected to flock to the County Court on Saturday 18 May for the annual Courts Open Day.

Guests will go behind the scenes and enjoy a free program of tours, mock trials, expert talks and more.

This rare opportunity for Victorians to learn about the inner workings of their justice system is perfect for families and includes food, drinks and games to keep children entertained.

Places for the events are limited, and will be distributed on a first-come-first serve basis on the day.
