The College produces publications under the guidance of Judicial Editorial Committees. These practical guides are regularly updated, with material relevant to all Victorian jurisdictions.

Although publications are primarily written for judicial officers, all court parties will find them useful. Most College publications are available free online to the legal community, the public and the media. 

College publications are only available online. The College does not prepare or provide print or CD-ROM versions.

The following pdf document, Internet Explorer instructions, may provide assistance if you are having difficulties accessing any of these publications. If you continue to experience difficulties please contact the College at:
