Land and Environment Court



The eCourt system is no longer the Court's authorised electronic case management system and on 23 May 2016 it was replaced with the NSW Online Registry website.

All files current as at 23 May 2016 are in the process of being moved to the NSW Online Registry.

As a result of changes to Part 3 of the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 2005, the NSW Online Registry is now the authorised system fo​r onlin​e registry services, in lieu of eCourt.

You can still use eCourt to view historical information​ about cases up to 23 May 2016.

However, the registry will no longer be adding to the eCourt record. The registry will no longer process requests for eCourt users to be added to eCourt files unless special circumstances exist.

    eCourt forms

    The forms that you will need to access information on eCourt are contained in the links below.


    Managing eCourt access      

    If you and other members of your firm require eCourt access to access historical information in any matters you are involved in, you should advise the registry of your role in the proceedings and provide reasons for requiring access.  If the Registrar is satisfied that it is appropriate to give you access to the eCourt file, an officer of the Court will action your request and you will receive a confirmation email to confirm when this activation process has taken place.

    Granting and removing access from other users

    Once you have been granted the initial access to a matter by a member of the Court staff, you will be able to grant equivalent access to other people, for example, other lawyers in your firm, so long as those persons have their own User ID and account. You will need to login to the matter, select the ‘parties’ option from the toolbar, and type in the person’s User ID. You may also delete existing User ID’s (for instance, when a solicitor leaves the firm) from the ‘parties’ list in the same way.

    Removing access if you move to another firm or are no longer involved in a case.

    Your eCourt account is an 'individual user' account and will travel with you even if you move to a new firm. You should however remove your access to cases in which you are no longer involved. To do this open the eFiles in question and select the 'parties' tag. Scroll down the page to the bottom to the 'Change Privileges of Existing Parties', find your account name in the drop down field and select 'none' to remove all access privileges. If you have any further questions, please contact a member of the client services staff in the Court registry.
