Tours and school visits

Take your students behind the scenes of Victoria’s legal system.

A tour of Victoria’s courts, tribunals and legal institutions is a great way to get students interested in the law and legal system. If you can’t make the trip to Melbourne, many organisations are happy to visit your school.

You can arrange tours and school visits throughout the year. Special tours and events are also offered during Law Week which takes place in May each year.

Tours of the Supreme Court of Victoria and County Court of Victoria for VCE Legal Studies students can be booked through the Court Services Victoria website.
