Class actions are proceedings brought on behalf of seven or more people where the claims arise out of the same, similar or related circumstances and these claims raise substantial common factual and legal questions.
This is not a complete list of class actions. New class actions are not displayed here until they are ready for a first directions hearing. After that stage, all Common Law class actions are listed here, whether they are at a pre-trial, trial or active settlement supervision stage. Historical Common Law class actions are not listed. For information about other Common Law class actions, or for information about Commercial Court class actions not listed here, please enquire via the contact details listed at the bottom of this page.
In certain cases the Supreme Court will live stream a class action trial for viewing by the public. Live streaming of class action trials can be accessed from our collection of audio and video webcasts.
