Review a VLSC decision imposing compensation or disciplinary orders
Lawyers may apply to VCAT to review compensation and disciplinary orders imposed on them by the Victorian Legal Services Commissioner under the Legal Profession Uniform Law (Victoria).
Cases VCAT can hear
VCAT can review the Victorian Legal Services Commissioner's decision to impose compensation orders or fines to a lawyer under the Legal Profession Uniform Law (Victoria).
We can only review the decision when the application is made by the lawyer.
Cases VCAT cannot hear
We can't review a decision by the Victorian Legal Services Commissioner not to impose compensation orders or fines.
We can explain the application process and what the form is asking you for. Contact us to get support.
We cannot give you legal advice. This means we cannot tell you what to write in your application or recommend how to get the outcome you want.
Do I need a lawyer or professional representative?
You may be represented by another lawyer if you wish.
Access and privacy
VCAT hearings and files are usually public.
VCAT has limited authority to restrict who can access cases and files but, in certain circumstances, you can apply for confidentiality.
