About the LIV

At its core the LIV’s purpose is to foster the rule of law and to promote improvements and developments in the law as it affects the public of Victoria.  The LIV has a long history of promoting justice, contributing to, shaping and developing effective state and federal legislation, and undertaking extensive advocacy for education of the community and of lawyers. It also assures the standards and professionalism of lawyers, including accreditation and specialisation in contemporary legal disciplines.

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 justice for all. 

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 community, delivers continuing legal education programs, and continues to provide expert services and resources.

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.
