AustLII Funding for International Projects

AustLII operates AsianLII, CommonLII and WorldLII, providing the technical infrastructure and staff to do so. AustLII has been developed since 1995 as a joint facility of the Faculty of Law of the University of New South Wales (UNSW), and the Faculty of Law of the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).

AsianLII, CommonLII and WorldLII, like AustLII, are free access services which are not funded by usage charges or advertisements. Funding is provided by contributors, a wide range of organisations who have an interest in facilitating access to legal information of particular types. By broadening the range of contributors as far as possible, AustLII aims to lighten the burden on any particular organisation of funding access to legal information.

New contributors are welcome. Any organisations or individuals who wish to support AustLII's international projects supporting free access to law, and particularly its operation of the Asian Legal Information Institute (AsianLII), Commonwealth Legal Information Institute (CommonLII) or World Legal Information Institute (WorldLII) are invited to become contributors to these international projects. Enquiries should be addressed to any one of AustLII's Co-Directors Professor Graham Greenleaf, Professor Andrew Mowbray, or Mr Philip Chung.




The total AustLII Funding for International Projects funding for the year to date is $251,500 (Last year $470,913).
