We are the Association of Australian Magistrates

The Association of Australian Magistrates (AAM) is a national organisation established to advocate on behalf of and provide comprehensive professional development to its members throughout Australia.

Magistrates are at the coal face of Australian State and Territories’ judicial systems. If people are to come into contact with the judicial system, whether it be in the criminal or civil jurisdictions, they are most likely to come face-to-face with a Magistrate.

By providing easy access to relevant information and the latest research AAM aims to educate the community about the important role Magistrates play in the delivery of justice.

AAM has strong links to the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration (AIJA) and the Commonwealth Magistrates and Judges Association (CMJA). All organisations are committed to ensuring that the highest levels of judicial education and independance are maintained at a national and international level.
