Colonial Cases


Website collecting previously-hidden case law of the British empire's colonial and consular courts. Compiled by Bruce Kercher of Macquarie University in Australia, the site has background and historical information about the case law of colonial courts and the sources used to identify cases. It makes available colonial cases from almost 100 different jurisdictions around the world, including less well-known colonial courts in places such as East and South-East Asia. At the time of writing the fullest collections were cases from New South Wales and Tasmania.
