Welcome to the Victorian Law Reform Commission

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.

As the Victorian state election will be held on Saturday 24 November 2018, the Victorian Government has assumed a caretaker role from 6.00pm on 30 October 2018. During the caretaker period, content will only be added to this website in accordance with the caretaker conventions.
