Law Report and Medium Neutral Case Citations2

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

These print and electronic case citations are commonly used in Australia and include both local and overseas references. Most of the citations are to where the full text of the judgment may be found and some are to series that digest the cases. When a judgment is made electronically, it is allocated a medium neutral citation by the court. A medium neutral citation usually reflects the abbreviation of the court. The authorised or quasi-authorised law reports, which are revised by the judges, indicate the preference by courts and practitioners to use these ahead of other versions of the cases.
