Victorians may come into contact with the justice system as a volunteer, a witness, to attend court, to support family and friends, or to participate in shaping legislation.   

The Victorian justice system includes policymaking and law reform, policing, courts and tribunals, dispute resolution, penalties and fines, prisons, corrections and parole, legal assistance and victim support.

The department and its business units and agencies deliver services across all areas of the justice system in Victoria. The department focuses on access to justice and fair outcomes, the protection of rights and the rule of law.
