I am grateful to the Courts Administration Authority of South Australia for entrusting me with a set of Commonwealth Law Reports, going back to Volume 1 (1903).
These days, electronic copies of law reports have largely taken over (the Supreme Court no longer needs so many sets), but there is still a residual place for bound volumes. The earlier ones are beautifully bound in leather, and there is something about reading a case in hard copy that speaks more cogently than a computer screen.
In due course, I will pass them on to a younger lawyer. Who, I wonder? Meanwhile, they sit happily in my chambers room in Myponga Beach.
