Since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, the Court has adjusted its ways of working, using digital technology to run trials, conduct hearings and mediations and operate as an organisation.

In 2020-21, more than 5,000 cases before the Court were finalised. Some proceedings are available for the public to watch via live stream.

An online version of the Court Education Program for VCE students has also been running. More than 1,000 students across Victoria participated in 42 educational sessions with Supreme Court judges in 2020-21.

The Court’s registries and Probate Office encourage people to make an appointment before attending in person.

If you are required to attend court and have been impacted by COVID-19, please notify the Prothonotary by emailing cebgubabgnel@fhcpbheg.ivp.tbi.nhua.vog.civ.truocpus@yratonohtorp as soon as possible to discuss the options available to you.

The Court will continue to provide updated information on operations as is required. For further information and guidance, please visit the Department of Health website.
