Magistrates Court

The Magistrates Court of Victoria website aims to provide accurate and correct information to people involved in matters dealt with by the Magistrates Court. Once of the main aims of the website is to reduce the workload of over the counter staff by providing the forms, applications and information associated with having matters dealt with before the court.  The website is divided into several main sections, based upon the areas of law dealt with by the court.  Each of these sections is easily accessible via the main navigation menu as well as through the navigation panel in the body of the homepage.

Content creation is managed using a publishing/workflow model that allows for multiple authors within each section. Each author  may create content, which is then approved by a section publisher. Relationships between pages and also to forms and other documents are defined via link groups, which allows a user to define a set of links once and then associate this link group to any page within the site
