Digital strategy consultancy PENSO has been appointed to lead the digital transformation and user experience of the Judicial College of Victoria.

The Judicial College of Victoria provides judicial education for the judicial officers who preside over the Victorian jurisdictions: Supreme Court, County Court, Magistrates’ Court, Children’s Court, Coroners Court and VCAT.

The College develops innovative ‘judge led’ educational programs, and authoritative legal resources that support judicial officers throughout their judicial life. It hosts events, conferences, and seminars, as well as delivering an extensive online library of bench books and guides. The work of the College is highly valued by both the judiciary and the legal profession.

PENSO has been tasked with developing the digital strategy and user experience for the College, which includes digital transformation as well as content, channel and technology strategies. It will work alongside the judiciary and members of the legal community, to support the College’s ability to maximise the value of every hour of judicial education through content and technology.

PENSO was appointed after a large and competitive pitch. 94 management consultancies, digital agencies and UX?rms provided submissions to take on this important legacy project. The Judicial College of Victoria is also currently undertaking an RFP to appoint a technology partner for the implementation phase of the digital transformation project.
