AustLII's End of Financial Year Appeal - June 2016
Please help us to make sure AustLII stays free for everyone to use.
Our continued existence depends on the contributions we receive from our users to ensure that we can provide the Australian community with free-access to public legal information.
For more than twenty years AustLII has provided free access to public legal information for everyone, irrespective of their means. This supports the effective functioning of the rule of law, and provides essential legal information that benefits the community. AustLII does not sell advertising or seek user access subscriptions because they are inconsistent with our commitment to free access. Read our Case for Support and our annual Year in Review for more information.
AustLII is Australia's most widely used source of legal information. In 2015, the AustLII website received over 254 million page accesses and over 23 terabytes of data were downloaded. We are currently maintaining over 730 databases of legal information and we add about 30 new databases each year. It takes about $1.2 million dollars per year to maintain the free-access electronic library. The costs of maintaining and improving AustLII’s services are necessarily increasing each year.
We rely on your support to provide the essential funding that enables the AustLII Foundation to maintain the technical capacity and the computing infrastructure to keep AustLII on line. The legal profession, business and industry, courts and tribunals, government agencies, educational institutions and the general community all make contributions to support AustLII.

Our Australian services are maintained by the AustLII Foundation Limited a not-for-profit company with charitable Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. This means that all contributions to AustLII (over $2) are tax deductible.
