Welcome to the New South Wales Court of Appeal Database
This database has been created as a resource tool for judges and legal practitioners in Australia and elsewhere. The aim is to make recent decisions of Australian appellate courts and courts in other common law jurisdictions more accessible.
The 'Decisions of Interest' page contains a selection of decisions from the New South Wales Court of Appeal and other Australian intermediate appellate courts. It also includes some decisions from the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, India and New Zealand. Users are provided with case summaries and judgments and are able to search or browse the database for relevant case law.
The 'Practice and Procedure' page contains the relevant guidelines, practice note and materials for practitioners appearing in the New South Wales Court of Appeal.
The Annotated Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) provides practitioners with authorities relevant to particular provisions of the Act.
Practitioners can access information on decisions reserved in the New South Wales Court of Appeal and decisions of the New South Wales Court of Appeal before the High Court. Selected speeches and other publications by New South Wales Court of Appeal judges are also provided.
