About us

The Magistrates' Court of Victoria (MCV) is a jurisdiction within the Court Services Victoria statutory authority and has a long history of providing justice for the people of Victoria in metropolitan and regional courts across the state.

The Court determines in excess of 300,000 cases per annum at 51 venues, equating to approximately 90 per cent of all cases that come before Victorian courts each year.  The Court aims to be an innovative, accessible and responsive court that provides quality services to the Victorian community.

VOCAT seeks a Koori person to assist in making connections with the Koori community, particularly in relation to victims of violent crime. The role will involve communicating to Koori service providers the range of assistance available under the Victims of Crime Assistance Act 1996 (the Act). The VOCAT Koori List Engagement Registrar will also create referral processes with practitioners from Umalek Balit, invite feedback from the Koori community and respond to that feedback by recommending and implementing culturally sensitive and inclusive methods of administering the Act
