2018: the VLF in transition

It’s been a busy and highly successful year at the VLF, with many changes.

As we come to the end of 2018, we thought it would be useful to summarise the developments which could affect you:


All but one of our hard copy publications have been transferred to Victoria Legal Aid. These are:

For copies or information, visit the Victoria Legal Aid website.

All the content on the Everyday-Law site will also transfer to Victoria Legal Aid in the very near future.

We still hold Victoria’s Legal System, the easy-to-understand guide explaining how the legal system works in Victoria. You can order copies through our website.


Our last General grants were recently awarded and we look forward very much to seeing the projects come to fruition.

A new grants structure rolls out in 2019, designed to support the collection and analysis of data in the interests of reducing barriers to justice services.

Find out more about our new grant rounds.


It’s been an outstanding year for our community and schools events and these programs will continue in 2019, including Law Talks, the Education Forum, the Oration and the Law and You forum.

Law Week is 13-19 May 2019 and is already promising to be better than ever!

You can find out more and register an event on our Law Week website.


Dr Nigel Balmer has just started as our inaugural Research Director, and our research agenda will take shape over the next few months. We’ll keep you posted through our Latest News.
