Justice reform

Reform of Queensland’s civil and criminal justice system

Some of the most extensive reforms of the Queensland justice system took effect on 1 November 2010 with the commencement of the majority of provisions in the Civil and Criminal Jurisdiction Reform and Modernisation Amendment Act 2010. The key amendments in the Act focus on streamlining the committal process in the Magistrates Court and expanding the criminal and civil jurisdictions of the Magistrates and District Courts.

Forms and other relevant information, including for example Practice Directions, will be available on the Queensland Courts website.
