The Law Library of Victoria tours of the Supreme Court Library

Our doors are open to everyone: tourists, QCs, solicitors, self-represented litigants, law students, judges - those in the legal profession – and those not. Opened in 1884, the Supreme Court Library is of architectural, historical and social significance and has one of the largest law collections in the state.

Our tours offer an opportunity to learn more about the library and its place in the Supreme Court. After the tour, we encourage you to spend some time to view our exhibitions and take in the beautiful surrounds under the dome of the Supreme Court Library.
