Abstract

This article explains the development of the Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII) over its first two years (1995-97), and is divided into six chapters: 1. Introduction - AustLII’s roles 2. Managing large scale hypertext databases - AustLII’s experience 3. Indexing law on the internet 4. The politics of public legal information 5. New legal services via the web - AustLII’s research on legal inferencing 6. Indigenous peoples’ legal issues via internet

As stated in the introduction 'These papers presented at AustLII’s first Conference on law on the internet (25-27 June 1997) provide an informal stocktake of AustLII’s first two years of providing free public access to Australian law, and an overview of new directions in AustLII’s work.' Many aspects of the early history of AustLII not covered in more formal papers are included here.
