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 the busiest tribunal in Australia. We finalise more than 80,000 cases a year – mostly disputes – at over 59 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.
