Mandatory electronic filing in the civil jurisdiction of the Supreme Court

Electronic filing in the civil jurisdiction of the Supreme Court is mandatory from 1 March 2018. This includes filing documents on matters commenced prior to this date.

 The Rules of the Supreme Court 1971 prescribe that documents must be filed using the EDS except in limited circumstances.

 The Court’s electronic document system (EDS) is the elodgment system on the ecourts portal and is available for use by the legal profession, government agencies and self-represented litigants.  

 Proceedings in the Court’s civil jurisdiction are commenced by filing originating documents. Once commenced other documents can also be filed using the EDS. Filing fees are paid online and all court orders and listings can be accessed electronically by parties to the proceedings.
