Where can I find information on Australian law and legislation?

The Library's eResources - Law & Politics provides access to freely available Australian legal sites, as well as licensed resources available offsite to registered readers, and onsite resources available inside the National Library building only.

Australasian Legal Information Institute (Austlii) provides free internet access to Australian primary and secondary legal information. It contains most fulltext legislation and court decisions.

ComLaw is maintained by the Australian Attorney General's Department and contains the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments.

Information on Australian Commonwealth and state legislation held in Australian libraries can be obtained from GovPubs: the Australian Government Publications Guide.
