Court lists

You can use the court lists to find the time and place of a court appearance, check what is happening in the court on a particular date or day, obtain information about ​matters listed for return of subpoena and check previo​us access orders, and confirm the range of available mediation or he​aring dates on offer.

You can check these details in the following ways:​​​

The online court list and Search Court NSW Lists app allow you to search for a particular case by name, case number, location, date, jurisdiction, title of presiding officer and type of listing (for example, directions, hearing, judgment and so on). You can search for cases listed up to two weeks in advance, and for historical listings that have occurred in the last seven days. The online court list and mobile app are refreshed every 60 seconds. The mobile app also saves you time by automatically saving recent searches (so you can check the same case again without re-entering your search criteria), and links through to interactive maps detailing the court's location.

View the daily court list sorted by case management list​

The daily co​urt list is updated at 3.30 pm each day and displays matters listed on the next business day. While this alternate version of the list does not offer the same comprehensive search functionality of the online court list, it does include the names of the specialist case management lists into which cases have been allocated (such as the Professional Negligence List, Defamation List). It also contains additional information for practitioners.

View details of court listings for specific cases using the On​line Registry​​

If you are a lawyer representing a party in a Supreme Court case, you can view details of past and future court listings online, 24 hours a day, using the Online Registry. The listing information that you can access includes listing date, estimated listing duration, presiding judicial officer, courtroom and location, and listing type (for example, directions, hearing and so on).This service is only available to parties in a case, or their legal representatives. Once registered, you can view those cases in which you have appeared as the solicitor on record; you will not have access to cases in which you are not directly involved.

Additional details about registration and viewing case information is available on the Online Registry website. ​​​
