The College exists to inform and enrich the Victorian judiciary. Everything we do, whether in-person, in print or online, is designed to impart deep knowledge and insight. We support judges, magistrates, coroners and tribunal members develop the skills they need to perform at their best.
By carefully curating our learning experiences, we help judicial officers maximise every precious hour they can devote to education. Consistent with our collegiate foundations, we also bring judicial officers together so they might share their collective wisdom with each other. We also connect them with leaders from an array of other disciplines who can offer different perspectives.
The College was established in 2002, by the Judicial College of Victoria Act 2001, with respect for the independence of the judiciary front of mind. Our Board is chaired by the Chief Justice and also includes the heads of the Victorian jurisdictions, along with two members of the public appointed by the Attorney-General.
