Australian Law Reports

The Australian Law Reports consist of decisions of the High Court, and significant decisions of the Federal and Supreme Courts. It also incorporates the Northern Territory Reports and the Australian Capital Territory Reports. Important judgments are published in the series within weeks of being handed down, and are available in hardcopy and online formats. All judgments contain headnotes written by experienced practitioners. After every five volumes a Cumulative Supplement of Index and Tables is produced and after every 25 volumes a Consolidated Index and Tables is produced. No other series provides the same degree of coverage and speed of reporting as Australian Law Reports. If you want access to current law as it is interpreted in our highest courts, Australian Law Reports is your first reference.
