Audio and Video webcasts

The Supreme Court webcasts certain trials and key ceremonies. Ceremonies captured include admissions ceremonies for new lawyers, welcome ceremonies for new judges and farewell ceremonies for departing judges.

Court of Appeal webcasting

From June 2017 the Court of Appeal commenced a six month pilot of making audio-visual recordings of hearings publicly available through its website. Some types of hearings are excluded from the pilot.

While all hearings are open to the public, footage is being provided to enable greater transparency and accessibility of hearings in the Court of Appeal.
