A guide to Australian legal research resources

Finding Australian Cases

Case citators are important research tools. They provide references to where the text of a judgment is reported, and they indicate relationships between cases, helping determine their precedent value.

You can find a case by name or by topic using a case citator.

Case citators provide the following information:

  • a citation for a case (and alternative citations if it has been reported in more than one place)
  • a link to the case if available
  • details of any subsequent cases that have considered the case
  • earlier cases considered by the case
  • journal articles about this case
  • if the case has considered any legislation.
