The objectives of the Judicial Conference of Australia all relate to the public interest in maintaining a strong and independent judiciary within a democratic society that adheres to the rule of law.
The Judicial Conference of Australia consists of judges and magistrates drawn from all jurisdictions and levels of the Australian court system.
It was established in 1993 as an incorporated association. The membership now stands at just under 700, which is more than half of the judicial officers in Australia.
Membership of the Judicial Conference of Australia is open to all serving and retired judges and magistrates in Australia and to masters and judicial registrars.
