Description

This new work supplies sought-after guidance to the criminal jurisdiction and procedure of the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria and Children’s Court of Victoria.

It provides invaluable commentary on legislation administering criminal law in both these courts. The author team includes current and former magistrates, who contribute their insights, derived from many years of experience on the Bench and as practitioners.

Relevant provisions from the following Acts are considered:

  • Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 (Vic)
  • Criminal Procedure Act 2009 (Vic)
  • Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 (Vic)
  • Magistrates’ Court Act 1989 (Vic)

It includes an overview of specialist courts and lists within the MCV and CCV, including the Koori Court, the Neighbourhood Justice Division, the Drug Court Division, the Assessment and Referral Court (ARC) List and Sexual Offences Lists.

As the Children’s Court of Victoria acquires many of the powers of the Magistrates' Court, under relevant provisions in the Magistrates' Court Act 1989 and Criminal Procedure Act 2009, this book brings together both of these areas in one resource.

Criminal Jurisdiction and Procedure in the Magistrates' and Children's Courts of Victoria offers insights into the lower courts that are not provided by other works. It represents unbeatable value and is a vital resource for judicial officers and professionals practicing in the criminal divisions of the courts, including private solicitors, public lawyers, legal aid lawyers, barristers, prosecuting agencies, police and government officers.
