The Court as Archive edited by Ann Genovese, Trish Luker and Kim Rubenstein, represents the first scholarly investigation in Australia of the role of the federal superior courts of record as significant national archives. Federal superior courts record the claims and disputes of a diverse society. They also create, curate and administer access to an archive of public records of immense social, cultural and national significance.
The contributions to this book seek to clarify the legal and civic responsibilities of superior courts, offering accounts of the archive’s significance, and assisting in the development of set principles for the future development and administration of Australian courts as archives.
