The simple act of a juror googling a case - or posting about it on Facebook - raises huge questions for our legal system. Can jury laws and digital technology coexist? Can the right to a fair trial survive modern community expectations? Join Juries Commissioner Paul Dore for an anecdotal and at times humorous exploration of the challenges facing our courts today - and the opportunities arising to empower citizens.


Paul Dore has worked in the Victorian Public Service since emigrating from Montréal in 1994, first in the State’s Youth Justice System and for the last 10 years with Victorian Courts. Before all that silliness, he was a bartender.

Paul was the Supreme Court of Victoria’s inaugural Chief Operating Officer and on two occasions for extended periods, the Court’s Acting Chief Executive Officer. He holds a Bachelor of Arts (Criminal Justice Administration), a Master of Applied Science (Organisation Dynamics) and an Executive Master of Public Administration.

Paul has been Victoria’s Juries Commissioner since March 2012.
