The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for the State of Queensland
Protecting your privacy
The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for the State of Queensland (ICLRQ) is committed to protecting the personal information we collect and hold about you. This policy explains how we collect, use, disclose and protect personal information, how you can request access to and correction of any personal information we hold about you and how you can make a privacy complaint.
The ICLRQ is a charitable institution which was founded in 1907. Our principal function is to publish the authorised reports of the Supreme Court of Queensland (the Queensland Reports), which contains a selection of the key decisions of the Supreme Court, as corrected and approved by the deciding Judges. It is the policy of the ICLRQ to further develop its own website located at the domain names www.queenslandjudgments.com.au and www.queenslandjudgments.org.au (the Websites), so that online access to the full set of the Queensland Reports, and all earlier reported Queensland judgments, is readily available to the courts, the legal profession and the public on a not-for-profit basis.
Since 1908, the ICLRQ has also produced a weekly publication – the Queensland Law Reporter. The Queensland Law Reporter contains advance notice of cases which have been selected by the Editors for reporting. It also contains public notices, including those placed pursuant to the requirements of the Rules of the Supreme Court in probate matters or prior to applications for admission to the legal profession. This publication is available free of charge at http://www.queenslandreports.com.au (also, the Websites).
(Together, the Services).
