The aim of this project is to compile a list of legal texts, across all practice areas, which are regarded as standard works in their field. In effect, the list seeks to produce a model law library for the assistance of legal practitioners.
The list primarily comprises current works. However, it also includes older or historical works, which continue to be of practical importance in their field.
Ready access to all works on the list is available through the Supreme Court Library.
This list was developed in consultation with leading members of the judiciary and the profession. We thank all who have assisted with this project, particularly those who have allowed us to mention their role as the nominator of specific texts.
As this is intended to be a useful reference library for the profession we welcome your suggestions. If there is a text you find particularly useful that is not on the list, or if you would like to be identified as the nominator of a book, please make your submission here.
It is intended that the list will be regularly reviewed and updated.
