About the Judicial Commission

Our work is designed to enhance public confidence in the judiciary by promoting the highest standards of judicial behaviour and decision making. The Judicial Officers Act 1986 provides a means for people to complain about the ability or behaviour of judicial officers (but not their decisions) and to have those complaints examined by an independent body. We are also leaders in judicial education and sentencing research and share our knowledge and experience with the global network of judiciaries and judicial education providers. We provide a range of highly regarded resources for judicial officers, including Bench Books, case summaries and other publications to promote consistency in the application of the criminal law and in sentencing.

*Total remuneration package for full time position from $145,962.09 –$168,803.81 (including salary range from $131,094 to $151,609 pa, employer’s contribution to superannuation and annual leave loading) with scope to negotiate on a pro rata basis for a part-time position.
