The Judicial Commission of New South Wales, an independent statutory corporation, is part of the judicial arm of government. It was established by the Judicial Officers Act 1986 [NSW]. Our Strategic Plan provides the framework for our operations.
The Commission’s principal functions are to:
- assist the courts to achieve consistency in sentencing
- organise and supervise an appropriate scheme of continuing education and training of judicial officers
- examine complaints against judicial officers.
The Commission may also:
- give advice to the Attorney General on such matters as the Commission thinks appropriate; and
- liaise with persons and organisations in connection with the performance of any of its functions.
