A History of Justices of Peace in Victoria


From the Community, for the Community. 

This first book from RVAHJ is compelling reading for all Honorary Justices and anybody interested in the Justice system in Victoria.

JPs and BJs are dedicated people from the Community for the Community, who give their time to others and help those in need.  This is a great read with plenty of stories through the years that shows how connected JPs are to those in their local community.  This is not only a great book to read – it is also a fantastic reference and important historical publication.
