About Us

We support better justice through research, education and grants.

Our research uncovers how people understand and navigate the law, assesses services that support better justice, and identifies community legal needs.

The education and events team helps the public understand the legal system, provides students with access to information about the law and helps legal professionals better communicate their work.

Our grants program allows us to provide crucial financial support to new community legal initiatives and projects.

We are funded by the Victorian Legal Services Board Public Purpose Fund, which provides us with financial support to conduct legal research and education. Our role is outlined in the Victoria Law Foundation Act 2009 (Vic.).
