About

The Court of Appeal website is an initiative of the New South Wales Court of Appeal supported by the Judicial Commission of New South Wales. This website has been created as a resource tool for legal practitioners and judges in Australia and elsewhere:
  • 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 decisions of interest from Asia-Pacific common law jurisdictions, the United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada, India and South Africa. The aim is to collect and promote awareness and accessibility of particularly significant recent decisions of Australian appellate courts and courts in other common law jurisdictions.
  • The Annotated Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) provides practitioners with summaries of recent significant cases from the Court of Appeal and High Court of Australia relevant to particular provisions of the Act.
  • 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 Publications page allows practitioners to 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.
