JLIB

The Jersey Legal Information Board supports and participates in the free access to law movement.

The Vision

For Jersey’s legal system to be, and be recognised as, the global best for a small jurisdiction.

 

The Strategy

The Jersey Legal Information Board (JLIB) has created a strategy setting the direction of Jersey's Legal Information Systems for the next five years. In order to achieve its vision, the approach of the Board is a progressive and forward-looking one, exploiting emerging technologies. However, the Board will be sensitive to the way in which Jersey's legal processes have developed in the light of the Island's unique historical and social status.

Elements of the Strategy:

· To make the law and legal processes more accessible

· To promote the better co-ordination of Jersey’s justice system

· To support Jersey's position as a leading business centre
