Research materials updated to reflect changes to the Bail Act 1977

Changes have been made to Chapter 9 of Reserve Magistrate Power's research materials to reflect major amendments to the Bail Act 1977 made by the Bail Amendment (Stage One) Act 2017 commencing on 21/05/18 and to foreshadow some amendments to be made by the Bail Amendment (Stage 2) Act 2017 due to commence on 01/07/2018.

The research materials contain comprehensive legal information on the jurisdiction and operation of the Children’s Court of Victoria. 

The 12 chapters have been compiled specifically for legal professionals, social workers and other professionals working in disciplines associated with the work of the Court, and students studying in these areas.

Chapters are published in PDF and Word and open in a new window. 

A separate PDF file contains a running list of amendments which have been made to the Research Materials.
