Hosted by: Community Legal Centres Queensland

Legal research is an indispensable skill for lawyers, serving as the foundation of informed legal practice. It empowers legal professionals to navigate the complexities of the law and to provide sound legal advice. Most subscription-based legal research databases come at a steep cost, making them inaccessible to community legal centres. However, there are some excellent free alternatives available.

In this webinar, Suzy Cullerton from MinterEllison will look at the most effective, free online resources available for efficient legal research. The session will cover:

  • Finding current and point-in-time legislation and extrinsic material
  • Efficient search strategies for finding relevant case law
  • Setting up alerts to monitor cases and legislation
  • Options for sourcing free online commentary
  • Historical material
