Australasian Legal Information Institute (AUSTLIII)
The Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII) provides free internet access to Australasian legal materials. AustLII’s broad public policy agenda is to improve access to justice through better access to information. To that end, we have become one of the largest sources of legal materials on the net, with over 20 gigabytes of raw text materials and over 4 million searchable documents.
AustLII publishes public legal information — that is, primary legal materials (legislation, treaties and decisions of courts and tribunals); and secondary legal materials created by public bodies for purposes of public access (law reform and royal commission reports for example) and a growing collection of law journals. You will find these materials listed under AustLII Databases.
