Judgments Bulletin

The Supreme Court produces a fortnightly judgments bulletin, which provides information about recent judgments of the Court of Appeal and Trial Division, and links to the full judgments held on the AustLII website.

Accessing judgments, sentences and summaries 

Recent judgments and sentences are published on the AustLII website:

The Court audio webcasts some judgments and sentences and streams them live. You can also listen to the audio on demand.

Reserved judgments

In some instances, a judgment may be reserved and thus not available to access. Parties who wish to enquire about a delay in the delivery of a reserved judgment of the Court should refer to the protocol for reserved judgments.

A number of unreported judgments, sentencing remarks and judgment summaries dating from the 1950s to the present, can be accessed via the Library catalogue. You can search the judgments index by party name, judge, citation and date. For assistance see the Judgments Search Help page.
