Using Online Court in the Land and Environment Court

The Online Court is available to parties or their legal representatives who are registered with the Online Registry and have matters with a future listing date in the Land and Environment Court.

Managing matters in Online Court

When parties, solicitors (or their delegates) or barristers have a matter listed in the land and Environment Court, they will automatically be able to use the Online Court to make a request.

The Decision Maker will review requests made through Online Court and make orders. The recording of an order in Online Court can result in:

  • the vacation of the next listing, and the scheduling of a new listing date
  • recording of the orders you sought, or the Decision Maker’s preferred orders

See a video demonstration of the NSW Online Court.

If you are a participant in the case, you will be notified by email when:

  • a request is submitted via the Online Court
  • a response to an Online Court request is made (consent or counter a request)

However, you will not be notified if you are a delegate to the solicitor on the record, barrister, or authorised officer.


At any time during Online Court:

Cut off times

The cut-off time for the Online Court for the Land and Environment Court List is 12:00pm the day before the in-person or online listing date.
