Bail Flowchart

This flowchart provides a visual representation of the decision making process used when deciding an application for bail. It includes mandatory considerations such as issues arising from the accused's Aboriginality, the category of the offence, whether there is an unacceptable risk and conditions which may be used to reduce the risk posed by the accused.

The flowchart was developed by Deputy Chief Magistrate Jelena Popovic and the Judicial College of Victoria.
