Unreported judgments

Unreported judgments

  • All decisions of the courts start as unreported judgments.
  • The vast majority of cases will remain unreported; only cases that change the law are published in law reports.
  • Never use unreported versions if the case is published in a law report.
  • Unreported judgments are only available electronically.
  • Since 1998 unreported decisions have a medium neutral citation which includes a unique court identifier in abbreviated form.
  • Example: HCA for the High Court of Australia.
