Decisions of the Superior Courts of New South Wales, 1788-1899


This is a very expensive project, in both time and money.  On average, each historical year of cases costs well over $10,000 in research assistance, typing, copying and the costs of relief from other duties for the principal researcher.

The project would not have been possible without the very substantial support of the Australian Research Council, Macquarie University, the Francis Forbes Society for Australian Legal History and the Public Purpose Fund..

We are also immensely grateful to Trevor Dunn Solicitors,Wendy Robinson QC and Justice John Hamilton, who donated money, time and enthusiasm to assist in this project.
