About us

Victoria Law Foundation helps Victorians to understand the law and use it to improve their lives.

At Victoria Law Foundation our programs help to give Victorians the knowledge and confidence to deal with everyday legal issues and seek legal help for problems.

Our focus is on providing better legal information for the community – for us, this means independent, accurate and easy-to-understand information about the law and the legal system, delivered in interesting and engaging ways.

Our work sets the standard for community legal information in Victoria. We use our position – as a leader in community legal publishing and an independent statutory body – to advocate for better legal information for all Victorians. We back this up by providing practical training, advice and support across the legal sector.

Our programs are not just about providing legal information. We engage Victorians on all aspects of the law. We also work closely with other organisations to reduce duplication and improve the quality of legal information. Ultimately, our work is about making the law more accessible.
