County Court Facility
The County Court moved to its current site on the corner of William and Lonsdale Streets, Melbourne in 2002.
Designed by Daryl Jackson SKM and Lyons Architects, the County Court facility was designed, financed and built through a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the State of Victoria.
The Court is owned and managed by The Liberty Group Consortium Pty Ltd (TLG).
When not in use by the County Court, courtrooms may be hired for:
arbitrations and mediations;
courts, boards, commissions, or tribunals; and
seminars, lectures, and moot courts.
Security Procedures at the County Court
In order to provide a safe and secure facility persons and their property attending Court will be required to pass through the weapons detection system located at the main entrance foyer.
