Many decisions are made by courts and tribunals each day. The decisions that are made, transcribed and released are called judgments. Not all decisions made by the court are released as written judgments.
The Supreme Court of Victoria Library is responsible for publishing Victorian Supreme Court and Victorian Court of Appeal judgments. Judgments are accessible via the Law Library of Victoria website and catalogue.
Supreme Court judgments, as well as judgments for other Victorian courts and tribunals are also accessible via free online databases such as AustLII and Jade.
Australian federal court judgments can be accessed via their respective websites.
High Court of Australia judgments
Federal Court of Australia judgments
Family Court of Australia judgments
Federal Circuit Court of Australia judgments
These judgments, as well as judgments for other Commonwealth and State courts and tribunals are also accessible from free online databases such as AustLII and Jade.
