Change to Public Access to Federal Law Search

1 April 2020


Access to Federal Law Search is now only available to registered users via the secure portal. 

This change may interfere with the ability of some persons to conduct other Federal Law searches, such as those relating to Admiralty, Bankruptcy and Native Title. It is anticipated that this will be a short term change. 

The Court is, as a matter of urgency, examining how it can move registers such as those related to Admiralty, so that they are not blocked, or otherwise provide equivalent search services to specific files to avoid inconvenience to litigants in those areas. 

Persons interested in searching the registers, or other non-migration areas, such as Admiralty, Bankruptcy and Native Title, who are unable to do so through the secure portal, should call 1300 720 980.
