Online services for the Land and Environment Court are now provided through the NSW Online Registry Website. Read the Handout.
All current files as at 23 May 2016 have been moved from the legacy eCourt system to the NSW Online Registry.
The NSW Online Registry Website enables people who are involved in court proceedings to perform a number of tasks online. These tasks fall within two different areas of the NSW Online Registry, as follows:
With Online Registry secure services, users can:
To start, you need to register for the NSW Online Registry. To register, you need to specify your role.
When you register you need to specify if:
If you are both a solicitor on the record, and also access matters on behalf of a solicitor on the record, you will need to register twice.
Once you register, you will not be able to add your case to your registration until you are able to verify the case with a barcode. To obtain a barcode number, call the registry on 9113 8200 and ask for them to send you a Notice of Listing. If you included your email address on documents that you've filed with the Court, the Notice of Listing can be emailed to you. If you haven't, it will be posted to you.
On the Notice of Listing, the barcode is on the right and can be used to access the case in Online Registry.
For assistance with the registration process, please refer to the following:
The solicitor on the record has automatic access in the Online Registry to the cases for which they are the solicitor on the record.
For another solicitor to gain access to the case on behalf of the solicitor on the record, the solicitor on the record must access their own profile in the Online Registry and add the solicitor who needs access as a delegate.
The solicitor can only be added as a delegate if they have set up their registration as a 'delegate' registration.
You might also consider setting up an eOrganisation to manage your work on the Online Registry.
For more information about sharing and managing work, please refer to the following:
There are no automatic notifications sent by Online Registry on the filing of documents, or when orders are made.
Notifications concerning Online Court requests, and correspondence to parties through JusticeLink (including notification of orders made), is sent only to the solicitor on the record. This has presented difficulties for some practitioners, who seek to have notifications sent to delegates. Unfortunately limitations on the user model of the system prevent this from occurring at present.
In order to manage notifications, one of the following actions is recommended:
