New Zealand Law Reports

An essential tool for lawyers, Judges, libraries, legal agencies, local bodies, the Ministry of Justice, and government departments, New Zealand Law Reports (NZLR) is the official report series of New Zealand. It includes decisions of the Supreme Court of New Zealand, Court of Appeal and High Court. NZLR started in 1881 but complete sets have been deemed to start at 1861 and include a number of prior series.

NZLR maintains a high standard of accuracy (99.9%). All Supreme Court decisions are reported, and are approved by the Supreme Court Bench prior to publication. Supreme Court decisions are reported with counsels' arguments (NZLR is the only report series to provide this).

Ideal for: Lawyers in practice and in commerce, Judges, law libraries, public libraries, legal agencies overseas, local bodies, Ministry of Justice and government departments.
