|The State Library of Victoria|
Events on Wednesday the 24th August included a tour of the Supreme Court of Victoria Library. As well as exploring the magnificent heritage-listed building, delegates were able to view historical items such as the court book that records the fate of Ned Kelly.
The first day of the conference program included the Welcome to Country that was conducted by a representative of the Wurundjeri Tribe Land & Compensation Cultural Heritage Council, offering an insight into the history of the Wurundjeri people.
Delegates were then privileged to have the Hon. Marilyn Louise Warren present the opening address. Part of her presentation identified that “knowledge needs to be managed” paying respect to law librarians that have helped her throughout her legal career.
