Bail applications and the rise of the online court environment

If you are charged with a serious criminal offence, you may need to apply to a court for bail to be released from custody.

So what factors are considered when deciding whether to grant an accused person bail? Attend a mock bail hearing in a criminal matter, showcasing the functionality of the Online Magistrates’ Court (OMC) and how it has contributed to access to justice in the COVID-19 environment.

Magistrates Donna Bakos and Timothy Bourke and the OMC team host this event with participation from Victoria Legal Aid.
