The Victoria Law Foundation: helping to build the evidence base to improve access to justice.

After 50 years of commitment to increasing understanding of the law, the VLF shifts its focus in 2018 to contributing to the development of a justice system which meets the needs of the Victorian community.

To this end, the Foundation is adding a research function to our existing activity in grants and education. Having spent many years helping Victorians understand their law, we will now also help the justice system better understand how Victorians experience justice, through data collection and analysis, evaluation of processes and primary research.

Building an evidence base to support more effective justice services is an important contribution to our democracy, and one we are delighted to undertake.

We are in the initial stages of building this function but if you would like to learn more, contact us or subscribe to our mailing list.

Working at the Foundation gives you the opportunity to work with some really talented people and help Victorians understand the law and use it to improve their lives.
