The Victorian Law Reform Commission currently has eight part-time Commissioners. The Acting Chair is the Hon. Jennifer Coate AO, while the Chair the Hon. Tony North KC is serving as a Commissioner of Yoorrook.
Each of the Commissioners works intensively on one or more projects in ‘divisions’ of the Commission. All Commissioners are involved in decision making about the recommendations in reports published by the Commission.
The Chairperson and part-time Commissioners are appointed by the Victorian Attorney-General for a period of four years. The Commissioners are supported by staff who organise and undertake consultations, research, draft and publish the Commission’s publications.
