The Australian Legal Scholarship Repository

Project Member(s): Mowbray, A.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)

Start year: 2008

Summary: It is difficult to find Australian legal scholarship of the last 50 years because too little of it is available online or searchable from any central location. The Australian Legal Scholarship Library, located on AustLII, will remedy that by creating a comprehensive repository for Australian academic and non profit law journals, law school repositories for all of their new scholarship no matter where it is eventually published, and smart methods of finding how legal documents relate to each other. People researching Australian law, whether for business, academic or community purposes, will benefit from better access to this wealth of expertise.
