As the authorised reports of the High Court, the prestigious Commonwealth Law Reports have published full text High Court decisions since 1903. Being the authorised reports, every judgment and headnote is checked by the judges of the High Court before inclusion in the Commonwealth Law Reports.
Each reported judgment includes a comprehensive headnote, written by an expert reporter, and approved by the High Court. Headnotes highlight the key issues of each case and include a summary of counsels’ arguments to the High Court. The Commonwealth Law Reports also include tables of cases reported, affirmed, reversed, overruled, applied or judicially commented on and cited, making it easy to find the precise information needed.
The online version has a full archive and includes PDF versions of the reports. It features links to FirstPoint to allow FirstPoint subscribers to quickly check the history and currency of a decision.
