Admission Ceremonies are suspended from Tuesday 17 March until further notice.

The Supreme Court has been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and preparing for potential impacts on services.

The Court has now made a decision to suspend Admission Ceremonies from Tuesday 17 March, 2020, until further notice. 

The Victorian Legal Admissions Board (VLAB) is contacting all those who were due to be admitted in three separate ceremonies tomorrow. We understand this will also impact members of the Victorian Bar and the profession more broadly, who were scheduled to move those admissions, together with the families and friends of the new lawyers.

This precautionary decision has been made after consideration of the latest expert health and government advice and recognises that members of the community may hold concerns about attending Court in large groups. 

The Court and VLAB will provide further information when available.
