AGS provides a wide variety of annual and biennial legal conferences for Australian Government employees.

These conferences are presented by AGS experts and specialists and will often also feature invited speakers including judges, senior politicians and academics.

Full-day conferences are generally delivered over a full day in-person. When delivered virtually, conferences may comprise multiple shorter sessions over a number of days.

Conferences may also be delivered as a blended session, both in-person and virtually.

Pricing for tickets to AGS events is calculated on a cost recovery basis. AGS does not aim to make a profit. As a result we are, unfortunately, unable to offer any discounts on event registrations, including for group bookings.
