Also included are transcripts of proceedings heard before Royal Commissions; Commissions of Inquiry; the Industrial Court; the Industrial Conciliation and Arbitration Commission; Land Appeal Court; and various other boards and tribunals.

The transcripts are classified as either: Civil; Criminal; Industrial; or Miscellaneous. The four different types of transcripts refer to the Jurisdiction of the Court in which the proceedings occurred: Civil = Civil Jurisdiction; Criminal = Criminal Jurisdiction; Industrial = Industrial Court, Industrial Conciliation, and Arbitration Commission etc; Miscellaneous = Royal Commissions, Land Appeal Court, and various other boards and tribunals. From 1926 to approximately 1944, the transcripts are housed in colour coded file covers according to these four types of cases (Civil = Blue; Criminal = Pink; Industrial = Orange; Miscellaneous = Yellow).
