The commission had a charter to consult with the community and advise the Attorney-General on how to improve and update Victorian laws.
The commisssion's major responsibility was to research issues the Attorney-General referred to it, but it also had the power to recommend minor changes to the law without a reference.
The Victorian Law Reform Commission was established under the Victorian Law Reform Commission Act 2000 and finally launched by the Attorney-General of Victoria on 27 April 2001. The Victorian Law Reform Commission was the central body for developing law reform in Victoria.
