Bail Act cases you need to know

News Date: 

Our new guide to Key Bail Act cases will help you stay on top of the case law about last year’s significant reforms to the Bail Act 1977 (Vic).
We have identified the main legal principles from recent Supreme Court decisions regarding:

  • the compelling reason test;
  • the exceptional circumstances test; and
  • what constitutes an unacceptable risk.

Our new Bail Flowchart also now reflects all of the reform provisions.

Access the Key Bail Act cases and the new Bail Flowchart on the Bail Materials Page.
