Law Reports of the Commonwealth

This content is unique to LexisNexis


The Law Reports of the Commonwealth provide wide coverage of legal developments throughout the Commonwealth, reporting the key cases whose significance transcends local boundaries. The series includes many otherwise unreported judgments. Areas of focus include administrative law, constitutional law and fundamental rights, commercial law, criminal law, practice and procedure, international law and tort law.
Each report includes a headnote summarising the legal issues determined in the case, alongside the full text judgment. A print-ready PDF is available to download for each report.
