Selected Judgments of the Constitutional Court (VfSlg)
Since 1919 the Constitutional Court has published its judgments and decisions in official, printed law reports. For a long time, these reports were entitled “Sammlung der Erkenntnisse und wichtigsten Beschlüsse des Verfassungsgerichtshofes” (VfSlg) (Compendium of Judgments and Most Important Decisions of the Constitutional Court). However since the number of cases increased steadily, it was decided to print only a selection of judgments and decisions. Hence, since 2012, the law reports have been published under the slightly different title “Ausgewählte Entscheidungen des Verfassungsgerichtshofes” (Selected Judgments of the Constitutional Court), with the acronym “VfSIg”. The reference number of the judgment used for citation.
The latest volumes of “Ausgewählten Entscheidungen des Verfassungsgerichtshofes” have been published by the Verlag Österreich and can be purchased in bookshops.
The Court’s judgments and decisions are also published online, in the Legal Information System (RIS), dating back to 1980. Judgments and decisions published in the official collection between 1919 and 1979 can also be consulted online, in the ALEX-database of the Austrian National Library.
