Key resources

Authorised report series

Considered to be the authoritative record of the judgment.

This series is ‘authorised’ by the relevant court. Each judgment and headnote is checked by the Judge or Judge’s Associate before being published.

Unauthorised report series

Simply a series that is not authorised by the court.

Still cited in preference to unreported versions of cases (see AGLC Rule 2.3.1), they are valuable sources of case law. They can be generalist or subject-specific.
