BAILII and WorldLII - British & Irish Legal Information Institute and World Legal Information Institute

IALS is playing a major part in the development of both these web sites. It is hosting BAILII, providing free access to full text British and Irish primary materials and it is providing the British content for WorldLII.


WorldLII provides a single search facility for databases created by 7 Legal Information Institute around the world, including BAILII, as well as various of its own databases which include international court and tribunal decisions and links to a large number of law-related web-sites around the world. In addition IALS is facilitating further developments of CommonLII (Commonwealth Legal Information Institute) through a fellowship at the Institute and collaborative digitisation initiatives. IALS is also involved in formative discussions on the creation of a potential EuroLII service (IALS outline).
