The Victorian premier has denied there is a crisis in the court's system after the widow of a magistrate who died last month spoke of the pressures of the job and its "unrelenting workload".

Jo Duncan, the widow of magistrate Stephen Myall, said magistrates are working under increasing workloads, with her husband sometimes overseeing more than 90 mentions a day.
