About us

The Victorian Law Reform Commission is an independent, government-funded organisation that develops, reviews and recommends reform of Victoria's state laws. 

The Commission has a charter to consult with the community and advise the Attorney-General on how to improve and update Victorian laws.

The Commission's major responsibility is to research issues the Attorney-General refers to it, but it also has the power to recommend minor changes to the law without a reference.

The Commission  is established under the Victorian Law Reform Commission Act 2000 as a central agency for developing law reform in Victoria.
