JOB DESCRIPTION

About us:

The County Court of Victoria is the principal trial court in the State of Victoria. The Court hears and determines criminal, common law and commercial matters. Our 70 Judges hear more than 12,000 cases per year across the three divisions. The County Court is committed to continuous improvement in accordance with the International Framework for Court Excellence.

Since 1 January 2007, the County Court has had an unlimited monetary jurisdiction in civil matters. The County Court has concurrent jurisdiction with the Supreme Court in almost all commercial litigation.

Following the removal of the monetary limit on the Court's jurisdiction and the appointment of additional judges with commercial expertise, the commercial work of the court has grown in both size and complexity, with over 2,000 commercial initiations in 2018-19. The work of the Commercial Division now constitutes approximately 45% of the court's civil jurisdiction.

We are seeking to appoint an Associate to support Her Honour Judge A Ryan of the Commercial Division of the Court.

As the Associate to you will provide operational, administrative and technical legal support to the Judge both in chambers and in court. The role involves case file management, a strong emphasis on communication at all levels, and legal research and writing.

Ideally you will have a legal background, the drive to succeed, ability to perform under pressure and the capacity to work well in a small team. Candidates who are looking to practise exclusively in commercial law will be highly regarded.
