Wallace, a centre or fly-half, has inked a one-year contract extension, having racked up 29 caps for his country since his debut in 2006. The 32-year-old is currently out of action due to thumb surgery.
Ulster have arranged a two-year stay for Court, 31, a product of the Queensland Reds Academy who qualified for Ireland through ancestry. Since arriving at Ravenhill in 2006, the prop has won 24 Test caps and travelled to the Rugby World Cup in 2011.
"It's great to get the contract agreed early, and to have the certainty about where I'm going to be for the foreseeable future," he said. "Now I can just concentrate on the rugby. Winning silverware with Ulster will be my main goal, and if things go well with Ulster then hopefully Ireland will fall into place."
