The Commission's intervention power under the Charter

Victorian courts and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal have important roles to play when it comes to interpreting the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities (the Charter) and applying it to the facts of particular cases.

The Charter gives the Attorney-General and the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission a statutory right to intervene in legal proceedings where a question of law arises about the application of the Charter or the interpretation of another law in light of the Charter.
