The Children's Court Clinic was founded in 1944 as a small scale service that provided clinical psychology services and assessments of children.

Over time the Children's Court Clinic has grown into a larger service and currently operates as the investigative arm of the Children's Court under the auspices of Department of Justice. In the past, the clinic also reported to the Department of Health.

The functions of the Clinic as defined in s. 546(2) Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 are as follows

- make clinical assessments of children
