Supreme Court of Victoria – Gertie’s Law The Supreme Court of Victoria has released a new podcast series entitled Gertie’s Law. It aims to help the community better understand and engage with the Court. The series takes a closer look at aspects of the Court such as sentencing, mental health, juries and the criminal trial process. It also looks at some historic cases. The first episode, approximately 46 minutes long, is currently available, with a new episode being released on a fortnightly basis. Transcripts in both word and pdf format are also available. Family Violence Law Help Funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department, National Legal Aid has developed this website to assist those affected by domestic and family violence. With states and territories having different laws, this is an important resource for both lawyers and victims. Tabs include Family Advocacy and Support Services, Domestic Violence Orders, Family Law and Child Protection Law. Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria – DVRCV Knowledge Centre The Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria, which focuses on preventing and responding to family violence, particularly in intimate relationships, has developed the Knowledge Centre website for survivors of family violence and workers in the field. The website publishes research and presents resources including a magazine for family violence service providers, discussion papers and booklets, as well as links to other relevant websites. DVRCV is Victoria’s only family violence registered training organisation. Sentencing Advisory Council – Publications The Sentencing Advisory Council is an independent statutory body. Under the Publications tab on its website you can find all its publications, freely downloadable, which you can browse alphabetically, by publication topic or date. Of particular interest are the Sentencing Snapshots where you can access the sentencing trends by offence and by court. Judicial College of Victoria – Bail Materials The Bail Materials page on the Judicial College of Victoria website now includes a new guide to key bail cases following last year’s reforms to the Bail Act 1977 (Vic). The cases handed down in the Victorian Supreme Court identify key legal principles regarding the compelling reason test, the exceptional circumstances test as well as what constitutes an unacceptable risk. Also, take a look at other material on this page including the Overview of changes commencing 21 May 2018. Judicial College of Law – Victorian Criminal Charge Book There have been updates to the Victorian Criminal Charge Book on the Judicial College of Victoria website. Each topic starts with commentary on a specific area of law and then groups the charge and its corresponding checklist together. There are several updates to this publication including prosecution failure to call or question witnesses, cultivation of narcotic plants and criminally concerned witnesses. More changes to publications will be released on this website in coming months.
