The Coroners Court Pro Bono Scheme Launch


The Victorian Bar's Pro Bono Committee invites you to the formal launch of a new pilot Scheme recently established between the Coroners Court and the Victorian Bar.

The Scheme is designed to enable Coroner's, where appropriate , to request the assistance of pro-bono counsel in relation to a range of decisions including those dealing with the appointment of senior next of kin, autopsies and the release of a body.  Importantly, it will support the provision of legal assistance and representation to people affected by the coronial process at a particularly vulnerable period in their lives while generally improving access to justice.

The launch will coincide with a CPD Seminar with guest speakers discussing the operation and varioues categories of the Scheme along with daily impact and workings of the Coroners Court.
