Audio-visual recordings of Full Court hearings heard in Canberra

The High Court has been considering how to improve public access to its hearings.  All hearings of the Court are open to the public. The Court also provides online access to a wide range of case-specific information.  The Court has now decided to take the further step of publishing on its website audio-visual recordings of Full Court hearings heard in Canberra.
