SUPREME COURT & OTHER COURTS

Supreme Court

Each state and territory have a Supreme Court which is presided over by a Chief Justice. The NSW Supreme Court is regulated by the Supreme Court Act 1970 (NSW) and is the largest superior court of general jurisdiction in Australia.

The Supreme Court hears serious criminal cases involving murder, treason and piracy.

The Supreme Court also hears bail applications which fail in the Local Court.

The Supreme Court may also hear matters under Commonwealth laws where the Supreme Court has been vested with federal jurisdiction.
