Federal Law Search

Case search (for public users)

18 May 2020: Following the Court's announcement on April 1 to changes to Federal Law Search, access has now been restored for all matters excluding Appeals and Migration.


Federal Law Search provides selected information on cases filed in the:

  • Federal Court of Australia
  • General Federal Law jurisdiction of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.

The information is real time and includes all cases that have commenced since 1 January 1984. As the database is continually updated, the results of a search may vary from time to time as new information is entered.

Users can also register in order to track activity in a matter before the Court.
