Australian Experience in the Establishment of a Computerized Legal Information Retrieval Service

The legal profession in Australia will soon have access to computer systems for legal information retrieval to assist them in their legal research. The State Governments of Victoria and New South Wales are at an advanced stage in making arrangements with private sector organisations to establish and operate legal information retrieval systems to include at least the statutes, subordinate legislation and case law of those particular States. The plan is for each of the two systems also to include the primary legal materials of at least two other States and, in this way, the two systems will cover the six States of Australia.
