This paper reviews the contributions of Jon Bing to the field of computerisation of law, using as its two bookends his groundbreaking 'Handbook of Legal Information Retrieval' (1984), and twenty years later his 2003 article "The Policies of Legal Information Services: A Perspective of Three Decades." The vision uniting these two works is that of an integrated national legal information service.
