Work Experience

Melbourne Children’s Court offers work experience placements for secondary students.  In some cases, the court also offers placements to tertiary students, particularly those undertaking a Bachelor of Arts (Criminal Justice Administration) course.

Most placements for secondary students are of one week’s duration. However, longer placements for tertiary students can also be arranged.

During a placement students can expect to:

  • receive information on the operation of the Children’s Court and in particular, the role of court registrar
  • spend time in court observing Family Division and Criminal Division cases, and
  • work in the registry of the court performing general office and administrative duties.

Please note:

  • all placements are subject to availability;
  • some placements may be subject to approval by the Principal Registrar; and
  • a booking will only be confirmed once the Work Experience Co-ordinator has received the relevant completed and signed application form.

Bookings for 2018 are now open
