The Victorian Supreme Court is clearing its backlog of cases at a quickening pace, according to new figures released on Thursday.
Chief Justice Marilyn Warren said the average clearance rate in all trial and appeal areas in 2011/2012 had jumped 10 per cent from the previous year to 116 per cent.
In some areas, clearance rates ranged from 109 per cent to 151 per cent.
The court's overall backlog of cases dropped by 21 per cent in 2011/12.
"The civil backlog is under control, with more than 1200 extra cases cleared during the reporting period," Chief Justice Warren said.
The court also collected feedback from court users and jurors, finding more than 80 per cent were happy with the treatment they received in court from staff.
But only a little more than 40 per cent were happy with the way opposing parties were kept separated and safe during court proceedings, while around 70 per cent of jurors were satisfied with lunchtime catering.
