Library services

The Law Courts Library acts as a legal resource and information centre for approximately 100 Judges, Acting Judges, Associate Judges, Federal Magistrates and Registrars located in the Law Courts Building.

Legal practitioners may apply for access to the Law Courts Library collections and services on a user-pays basis but do not have borrowing rights.

Access charges are levied on a daily, monthly and financial year basis. Rates and application forms are published on the Law Courts Library website.

Although the access to the Library is restricted to judicial officers, court staff and legal practitioners who hold an Access Card, members of the public can search the Library's online catalogue and request to borrow certain items through a local library.
