Case law by subject

Case law subject reports are based on the subject matter of cases, rather than the jurisdiction.  These reports are published as part of the commentary services on the law.  If you search a commentary service online you will find results from the reports included in the service.

For example:

  • Australian Company Law Cases
  • Australian Tax Cases
  • Industrial Reports

Looking for information from other jurisdictions? Try:


  • Search journal articles using relevant keywords
  • provide current discussion of a topic
  • can be searched using a database or browsed online (if full text available)
  • can be either peer-reviewed/academic or magazine style
  • includes indexed of legislation/cases discussed in the articles

Books provide comprehensive coverage of an area of law and usually include an index of case law and legislation references

The Law Library keeps the most heavily used texts in the High Use Collection.
