Administrative and corporate support
The Courts, Tribunals and Service Delivery division of the Department of Communities and Justice provides administrative and corporate support to 10 state courts and tribunals.
How well our courts perform
The performance of our courts and tribunals is among the best in Australia for timely resolution of cases.
This has been shown in the Productivity Commission's Report on Government Services (ROGS), which compares the performance of courts in states and territories across Australia.
Performance of individual courts and tribunals
Each court or tribunal publishes its own annual report or review, providing specific information about its activities and performance.
At Courts and Tribunal Services, we are working hard to improve access to justice and alternative dispute resolution options. We use innovative technology in courtrooms to improve access to services and for electronic filing of documents.
Our recent achievements include the following.
Our network of remote witness and videoconferencing facilities has been further expanded across the state, providing more facilities for witnesses to give evidence from remote locations.
Online court lists and electronic filing (efiling) services are making it easier for court users to find court information and for legal representatives to interact with our offices. Further projects will expand the availability of online services to all court users.
A dedicated Courts Service Centre provides a single access point for people seeking telephone information about jury services and court information.
The Court Service Centre currently deals with enquiries for particular courts. Its coverage is being expanded, making contact between the public and courts faster and easier.
