About the committee

The High Court of Australia is the highest court in Australia's legal system, and is the final court of appeal. It has the power of judicial review over laws passed by the federal, state and territory parliaments. The High Court also has the power to interpret the Constitution of Australia, meaning it is powerful in shaping the federal system in Australia. The bench of the Court consists of seven justices, appointed by the Governor-General on the advice of the federal government, with one justice serving as Chief Justice.
