The Commonwealth Legal Information Institute (CommonLII) aims to provide one central Internet location from which it is possible to search - for free - core legal information from all Commonwealth countries. CommonLII will provide a common technical platform through which all Commonwealth countries can cooperatively provide access to their laws. CommonLII will assist the development of a genuinely international common law. It will support the rule of law throughout the Commonwealth, by making each country's legal system more transparent. This transparency will also support international trade and investment.

Through the development of CommonLII and the assistance of the Free Access to Law Movement developing countries in the Commonwealth will obtain assistance to create national sustainable free access to law. The Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII) is leading the CommonLII initiative.

We hope that you enjoy using CommonLII and find it to be a useful service. Any words of encouragement or constructive criticism are always welcome of course.
