Publications

The Judicial Commission’s publications cover criminal law, sentencing, judicial administration, practice and procedure, and social context issues. They aim to provide judicial officers with a diverse range of professional reference information to assist them in the performance of their judicial functions. While the Commission does not sell its publications in hard copy, most of our publications can be downloaded free from this website. The bench books are updated regularly so we recommend checking the website regularly for updates and downloading the current version to your PC or tablet device.
