About the LIV
The LIV represents more than 19,000 lawyers and people working in the law in Victoria, interstate and overseas. Our members offer their commitment, diversity and expertise to help shape the laws of Victoria and to ensure a strong legal profession for the future.
The LIV promotes justice for all by advancing social and public welfare in the operation of the courts and legal system, as well as advancing education and public confidence both in the legal profession and in the processes by which the law is made and administered.
As the peak body for the Victorian legal profession, the LIV initiates programs to support the needs of a changing profession, promotes an active law reform advocacy agenda, responds publicly to issues affecting the profession and broader community, delivers continuing legal education programs, and continues to provide expert services and resources to support our members.
The LIV is a non-profit organisation dedicated to its members and the development, maintenance and the sustenance of the law for the benefit of the community.
