About the role

These powers involve the preparation and processing of administrative and statutory documentation and the exercise of discretionary quasi-judicial and statutory powers using professional judgement in applying legislative requirements, established rules and precedents, and the Court's Practice Directions.

The Shepparton Law Court operates as a Specialist Family Violence Court (SFVC). The objectives of the SFVC is to provide:

  • better and safer access to the courts and specialist services
  • appropriate joint responses for victims and perpetrators
  • a skilled and sensitive workforce.

This role will form part of the SFVC team and will play an important part in delivering best practice responses to families experiencing family violence. This role has significant technical components and requires someone who has both an advanced understanding of the Court's protocols and procedures and a well-developed understanding of the dynamics of family violence.
