About VCAT

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) resolves legal disputes and cases in Victoria.

We are a tribunal, which means we’re less formal than a court. We hear and decide cases according to the law. 

We’re among the busiest tribunals in Australia. We finalise more than 60,000 cases a year – mostly disputes – at our venues across Victoria. We’ve operated since 1998.

The law that establishes and governs us is the Victorian Civil and Administrative Act 1998. We’re supported by Court Services Victoria a government agency that provides us with administrative support and facilities.
