AustLII's 2019 End of Financial Year Appeal
Please help us to make sure AustLII stays free for everyone to use. Support AustLII by making a contribution today.
Twice each year -- in June and December -- we ask you to contribute to AustLII. We are deeply grateful to you for every donation, not only because you donated, but because your contributions are a vote of confidence in us and in our mission of helping others find and understand the law.
AustLII provides more free access legal information than any other online resource in Australia. Every day the legal profession is saving thousands of hours of time, resources and money by using on AustLII. Every day AustLII is making a positive impact providing critical information to the community.
AustLII is committed to the principles that free access to public legal information is a democratic right that promotes justice and the rule of law, and that public legal information is digital common property and should be accessible to all on a non-profit basis and free of charge. AustLII operates as a charity in order to deliver its mission of free and anonymous access to public legal information.
We continually strive to improve the services we provide to all our users. In the past year:
- we have redeveloped and expanded our industrial law resources, including making available the complete Commonwealth Arbitration Reports (336 volumes, 64,902 documents, 329,323 pages);
- we are developing our DataLex 'AI' tool as a 'legal expert system' to support decision-making applications;
- our AustLII Communities platform now provides the capacity for the Community Legal sector to deliver useful plain language resources to the community.
While the use of AustLII's service continues to grow, unfortunately, there has been little change to the financial contributions that the Foundation receives each year. Our existence depends on the contributions we receive from supporters who use our service to ensure that we can continue provide free-access legal information to the Australian community.
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.
