The Federal Circuit Court of Australia (also known as the Federal Circuit Court) was established at the end of 1999. The Court is an independent federal court under the Australian Constitution. The jurisdiction of the Federal Circuit Court includes family law and child support, administrative law, bankruptcy, unlawful discrimination, consumer protection law, privacy law, migration, copyright, industrial relations and admiralty law. The Court shares those jurisdictions with the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Court of Australia. The objective of the Federal Circuit Court is to provide a simpler and more accessible alternative to litigation in the superior courts and to relieve the workload of those courts.
