New Zealand Law Reports

An essential publication on New Zealand law, the New Zealand Law Reports (NZLRs) is the official report series of New Zealand. It includes decisions of the Supreme Court of New Zealand, Court of Appeal and High Court. The first NZLRs published in 1881, with complete sets deemed to have started at 1861.

The NZLRs maintains a high standard of accuracy. 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 (the NZLR is the only report series to provide this).
