British and Irish Legal Information Institute
The British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII) provides access to “the most comprehensive set of British and Irish primary legal materials that are available for free and in one place on the internet. In August 2007, BAILII included 76 databases covering 7 jurisdictions. The system contains around 11 gigabytes of legal materials and around 200,000 searchable documents.” Primary and secondary source material can be be browsed by the user and/or located by using the BAILII search engine. “The BAILII web site now contains the key common law databases of recent decisions of the Privy Council, House of Lords and the Court of Appeal, important courts such as the Scottish Court of Session and the Irish Supreme Court, other courts and tribunals, and legislation from three jurisdictions (e.g. Northern Irish legislation goes back to 1495). It also contains recent reports and consultation papers from the Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Reform Commission, in addition to the Irish Law Reform Commission materials which have been on the site for some time.”
