Civil Justice Review: Consultation Paper (pdf)
In May 2004, the Attorney-General issued a Justice Statement indicating directions for reform of Victoria’s justice system. The statement’s concerns in civil justice included the need to streamline litigation processes, reduce costs and delays, and achieve uniformity across different courts. Subsequently, in 2006, the Attorney-General asked the Commission to identify objectives and principles that should guide the reform of civil procedure to make it quicker, cheaper and fairer.
Conducted under the guidance of full-time Commissioner Professor Peter Cashman, the review produced a consultation paper in September 2006.
