This is unlike other high courts, such as the Supreme Court of the United States (though federal courts do have the ability to shape federal common law).

This role, alongside its role in constitutional interpretation, is one of the court's most significant. As Owen Dixon said on his swearing in as Chief Justice of Australia:
