AustLII's 2020 End of Year Appeal - Please continue to support us


Can we firstly thank everyone who responded to our Appeal in May.

It has been an extraordinary and challenging year but thanks to the generosity of all our supporters in the legal profession, business and industry, courts and tribunals, government agencies, educational institutions and the general community we have continued to operate in 2020.

However, we have had to make significant savings for a small organisation and are still about $400,000 short of covering our costs for the year.

We are deeply grateful to everyone who makes a donation, not only because you donated, but also because your contributions are a vote of confidence in us and in our mission of helping others find and understand the law. AustLII's fundamental guiding principles are that free access to public legal information is a democratic right that promotes justice and the rule of law, and that public legal information is digital common property and should be accessible to all on a non-profit basis and free of charge.

For those who have already made a donation this year we thank you and ask if you can provide further support please do so. Your support helps people find and understand the law each year, and it is a powerful vote of confidence in AustLII's mission. You help us to serve the millions of people who rely on AustLII to keep them informed about the law in Australia.

Donations are our core income. If our users don't fund us no one else will. We rely on you so that you can rely on us.
