Heritage Minister Albert Jacob said the grant would upgrade the courthouse and law exhibits, which focus on the first 50 years of the Swan River Colony and the evolution of WA law.

‘This Lotterywest grant will be used to significantly improve the Old Court House and Law Museum, so that visitors can gain a better understanding of the law and how it developed in WA,’ he said.

Law Society WA president Konrad de Kerloy said the grant would enable better preservation and celebrations of the State’s history.

‘The realisation of this design plan will address the overall presentation of the museum and allow for greater communication of stories of the development of the law in WA to museum visitors, schoolchildren, locals and overseas visitors,’ he said.
