The library serves the legal profession and is located at the heart of the Supreme Court House complex.

Our collection

The Supreme Court library has well over 120,000 volumes, and is one of the largest law collections in the State. There are extensive series of law reports from all Australian jurisdictions, as well as from various other countries. There is also a large collection of statutory material, textbooks and periodicals. The oldest textbook is Statham's Abridgement, printed in 1490. The Library has, however, not neglected modern technology and has access to many commercial databases on the Internet, available to Judges in their chambers and all library users. In addition, the library has a collection of artworks and objects relating to the Supreme Court, judges, and the legal profession.
