Year 11 and 12 court visits

Due to public health considerations, court visits have been suspended. The VCE Schools Program will be conducted virtually for Terms 1 and 2 this year.

Schools Program

This program provides VCE Legal Studies students with the opportunity to engage with judges and associates of the Supreme Court and County Court, and observe court proceedings online.

Year 11 and 12 students can engage with judges on a range of topics, including the role of the judge and jury, the right to a fair trial, the complexity of sentences and judgments and matters relevant to their legal studies curriculum.

Booking a session

Teachers can book a session for their class through the Court Education Program booking page.

Please note that sessions:

  • are only available for selected days during Terms 1 and 2
  • must be booked by a teacher using their school email address
  • are limited to one per school (either a Supreme Court or County Court session)
  • may include any number of participating students (i.e. multiple classrooms should join one online session, rather than one session per class)

For further information about the Court Education Program or for booking queries, please email education@courts.vic.gov.au.

Work experience

The Court’s work experience program is currently suspended until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions.
