Criminal Codes Appellate Decisions

The Criminal Codes Appellate Decisions database contains selected High Court and intermediate appeal court judgments relating to the Criminal Codes in Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. The database contains judgments dating from October 2009 onwards, and is updated weekly.

Judgments are selected based on their relevance to criminal law practice. An outline of the significant points in each case is provided, along with a comparative table referring to the relevant sections of the criminal codes. Sentencing, drug-related and sexual offence decisions are not included.

Judgments may be searched by state, legislation or by comparative sections in the Criminal Codes of the four jurisdictions. Judgments may also be browsed by month.
