Due to public health considerations, the Court Education Program will be conducted virtually for terms 1 and 2 of this year. The program is open to VCE Legal Studies students and provides students with the opportunity to engage with judges and associates of the Supreme Court and County Court, and to observe live court proceedings online.

In 2016, the Court launched a video and booklet for teachers and VCE Legal Studies students to help explain the roles of people who work in the courtroom, the procedures of a trial and how a trial reaches the Supreme Court. These free resources were produced in 2016 as part of a General Grant received from the Victoria Law Foundation.
The booklet and video, follows the fictional case of Justin, an 18-year old student charged with manslaughter, as he proceeds through a criminal trial at the Supreme Court of Victoria.
