Westlaw AU Tip - Searching Case Law by Court

Westlaw AU provides the ability to search  for a case by court. This is a quick and easy method for restricting your search to a specific court or jurisdiction.

To Search by Court

Step 1: From the Westlaw AU homepage click the Cases template.


Step 2: Enter search terms into the relevant fields such as free text.

Step 3: Then begin typing the name of the court into the Court field. Select the required court from the predictive text drop-down menu e.g. Supreme Court of New South Wales.


Step 4: Click Search to run the search. The search results will display cases from the selected court with your search terms highlighted.
