Supreme Court of Tasmania




Unreported judgments of the Supreme Court of Tasmania are available on AustLII  (Australian Legal Information Institute). Judgments are available from 1987 onwards but the coverage for 1987-1992 is not complete.

From 1 January 2010 appeal judgments will be published using citations which identify the relevant court. For example (note these are not actual citations):

Full Court: Smith v Jones [2010] TASFC 1

Court of Criminal Appeal: State of Tasmania v Smith ]2010] TASCCA 1
