Judicial Life/
The privilege and pressure of judicial work.

Judges and magistrates experience both high satisfaction and high stress in their work. This event showcases recently published Australian research from interviews with judicial officers about the experience of stress and satisfaction in their work. It will explore how they can be further supported to thrive in their judicial role.

Introducing our new bench book display.

We have launched a standardised design across our entire collection of bench books.

The Judicial College 2024 Education Prospectus is online.

We’re excited to announce the launch of our calendar of events for 2024, designed to meet the needs of all Victorian judicial officers.

Conduct and ethics resource collection.

Judicial ethics and applicable standards of conduct reflect core values of impartiality, independence and integrity. Conduct that is consistent with those values maintains public confidence in the courts and VCAT and fosters community respect. To support this, the College has introduced a Conduct and ethics resource collection.
