Art for a just cause

Art for a just cause

26 March 2018


Artists and musicians to have unique opportunity to participate in justice by creating artworks and compositions that highlight experiences or reflections upon the concept of justice and our justice system.

President of The Law Society of NSW Doug Humphreys said The Law Society of NSW’s Just Art and Just Music competitions were open not just to solicitors and law students but to anyone who shares a motivation for justice.

“Just Art and Just Music give the legal profession and lovers of justice the chance to celebrate the rule of law through a creative medium,” he said.

“It is an opportunity to reflect critically on the strengths and vulnerabilities of the justice system through art and music.”

Artwork can be in any form – painting, printing, sculpture or photography while music compositions can be any genre – classical, folk, contemporary or rap.

Finalists will be showcased at two charity events in Sydney later this year: a music concert for Just Music and an art exhibition for Just Art where artworks will be available for purchase.

A percentage of proceeds from each event will be donated to the President’s 2018 Charity, The Butterfly Foundation.

Both music and art submissions can be made online. Entries close on May 31. More details can be found on our website at
