The Court is gradually adjusting its operations in line with the removal of a number of COVID-19 restrictions.

Criminal jury trials have resumed as a priority. With the latest easing of restrictions, courtroom arrangements have returned to normal and the number of trials able to be run concurrently has increased.

It is no longer necessary to make applications for in-person hearings in any matter before the Court. The Court will operate on a series of default positions and exceptions set out in a notice to the profession authorised by the Chief Justice.

COVID-Safety measures are in place across all buildings. Public entrances are open. QR check-in systems remain in place at each building’s security screening area.

Face masks are required to be worn in all publicly accessible areas and jury facilities in Supreme Court of Victoria buildings subject to the exemptions. Masks can be provided at the security screening point if required.

All those attending Court locations are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated.

If you are subject to a requirement to isolate, feel unwell or have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, do not attend at Court and notify the Registry by calling the Prothonotary on 03 8600 2023 or emailing prothonotary @supcourt.vic.gov.au.

The Supreme Court Registry and Probate Office remain operational and encourage appointments for those needing to attend in person. Please telephone the Registry Services team or the Probate Office to discuss alternatives to in-person attendance or to make an appointment. The Registry Services team and Probate Office can be contacted on 8600 2000.
