Corporate Information

On 1 July 2016, the corporate services functions of the  Federal Court, Family Court and Federal Circuit Court merged into a single  administrative entity. This follows the passage of the Courts  Administration Legislation Amendment Act 2016 earlier in 2016.

Corporate services include communications,  finance, human resources, information technology, library, procurement and contract  management, property, risk oversight and management and statistics.

Each court will have a separate budget  allocation and maintain their distinct statutory identities.

From 1 July 2012, the Court assumed  responsibility for administering the National Native Title  Tribunal.​


The Court issues a number of corporate publications in  accordance with Commonwealth legislation, in compliance with Senate Orders and  other government requirements.
