The Coroners Court of Victoria has three roles:
- independently investigate deaths and fires
- reduce preventable deaths
- promote public health and safety and the administration of justice
Victorian families are at the centre of everything we do – from conducting thorough investigations, providing respectful services and how we share court information and documents.
To deliver the best services possible to Victorian families, the court works closely with other courts and organisations.
The Coroners Court of Victoria was established on 1 November 2009 when the Coroners Act 2008 came into effect.
The Coroners Act 2008 requires the reporting of certain deaths, and establishes the Coroners Court of Victoria as a specialist inquisitorial court.
The Coroners Court of Victoria offers a range of full-time, part-time and casual positions.
