No. 1 of 2002

Court Lists Published on Website

From 22 May 2002, the Court Lists for the Hobart Magistrates Court (sitting in its Criminal & General Division) will be available on the Court's web site.

Only a single day's cases will be published at this stage.  Eventually, we intend to publish details of Court listings over a longer period of time.

The Court Lists can be accessed from the Magistrates Court home page at:

http://www.magistratescourt.tas.gov.au/

Practitioners will be able to use their web browsers to search for a clients' name to ascertain the time and Court number in which they are listed to appear.

The lists for the following day will be published around 4:30pm each business day.

In the future we intend to make available to practitioners the daily lists for the other Court Registries (in Launceston, Devonport, and Burnie) via our Internet web-site address.  However, this is dependent upon the installation of new computer software and systems in the other registries.
