Judicial monitoring is a key feature of many therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ) initiatives. It involves active oversight of a case by a judicial officer, usually including multiple court appearances of an accused person or offender before the same judicial officer.
The Magistrates’ Court of Victoria (MCV) operates a range of specialist courts and lists. It also utilises the Court Integrated Services Program (CISP) in mainstream court. Magistrates also now have the option of judicially monitoring offenders sentenced to a community corrections order.
Led by Deputy Chief Magistrate Jelena Popovic, this presentation by a panel of Victorian magistrates who sit in specialist court lists will discuss the different forms of judicial monitoring that are practiced in Victoria.
Jelena is a Victorian Deputy Chief Magistrate of 27 years standing who has a keen interest in solution focussed judging and is the Supervising Magistrate of the Koori Courts.
