Inclusive Juries – Access for People who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Blind or Have Low Vision

The Victorian Law Reform Commission is calling for community input on this law reform project. Read about the issues in the consultation paper - see the links below. Questions to guide submission writing are included in the consultation paper and submissions close on 28 February 2021.

The Commission is considering what changes to legislation and practices should be made to enhance access for people who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision who wish to serve as jurors in Victoria.

We will be holding consultations in January and February 2021 and are now inviting submissions and responses to our community survey.

Download the consultation paper and find out how to have your say.
