The College was established with bipartisan support in 2002.

The Judicial College of Victoria Act 2001 provides for the creation of the College Board, which has overall responsibility for the College. The Board is chaired by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria and comprises heads of the six Victorian jurisdictions and two governor-in-council appointees.
