Online Sources on Australasian Legal History

A press release from the TC Beirne School of Law, University of Queensland reports that a grant from the Australian Research Council to the Australasian Legal Information Institute will make possible “a massive expansion of free access online to Australasian legal history through digitisation and data aggregation. The Legal History Libraries on AustLII will become a comprehensive trans-Tasman collection from 1788-1999, including all reported case series and those from colonial newspaper reports, and all Acts enacted, plus key collections of historical Bills, Gazettes, legal commentaries, and Parliamentary reports.”
