A Tale of Two Citations (ICLR)

This database provides a searchable collection of High Court judgments from 2000 to the present. Judgments are published on the day they are delivered and are provided in both pdf and rtf format.
Further information about each case, including the parties' written submissions, transcript of the hearing and judgment summaries, are available from the High Court website at cases heard.
