Helping Victorians understand the law and use it to improve their lives
At the Victoria Law Foundation our focus is on helping Victorians understand the law and using it to improve their lives. We do this through education programs for school students and the Victorian community, a range of easy-to-understand publications and a grants program that supports other organisations to do the same.
We are committed to delivering unique and interesting programs that truly engage the Victorian community in the law; hopefully leading to a life-long interest. This work can only be achieved with the support of our colleagues in the legal sector. To ensure the success of our program we often partner with the courts, members of the profession and peak and statutory bodies.
We are the only specialist community legal education body in Victoria. Through our work we have developed specialist skills. We actively share these skills and offer training in our areas of expertise. We also actively work across the sector by being involved in groups such as VLAF.
The foundation is governed by the Victoria Law Foundation Act 2009 which outlines its functions. More details on our current programs can be found in our strategic plan (PDF – 163 KB).
We are a proudly independent statutory body funded by the Legal Services Board Public Purpose Fund.
