Comments and Contacts

The Local Court Bench Book has been designed to assist magistrates to conduct proceedings in the Local Court of New South Wales. The material has been developed under the direction of the Local Court Bench Book Subcommittee as part of the Local Court Education Committee.

The Local Court Bench Book will be progressively updated in accordance with legislative changes and court decisions.

Although considerable care has been taken in the preparation of these materials, the content should not be regarded as a substitute for the actual text of legislation or court decisions.

As we wish to produce materials which are of benefit to judicial officers, the Judicial Commission welcomes any criticisms or suggestions as to the form or content of the Local Court Bench Book. We encourage you to contact us should any errors or omissions be found —
