Drama has unfolded in these courtrooms for more than 130 years, from serial murderers and gangland wars to multimillion-dollar commercial disputes and celebrity defamation cases. Take a step behind the bench of one of Australia’s oldest institutions and hear from judges as they explain why they make the decisions they do.

Gertie's Law takes a deep dive into some of the lesser-known, misunderstood or complex parts of the court’s work, such as sentencing, mental health, juries and the criminal trial process. Revisit historic cases, meet the many people who work here, from judges to Corrections staff, and take a close look at how a modern justice system operates in a 19th century building.

Excellent & Informative

Such a wonderful podcast for the public, law students, and legal practitioners alike. I can’t wait until the next series is released. It is both insightful and topical, with a range of different legal (and practical) issues canvassed. What a treat to hear directly from Supreme and Court of Appeal Justices about their views. And such cool theme music. Congratulations to all involved!

Who ever thinks about these things? A great educational show about the workings of the law and the reasons it works that way...
