Brief description High quality legal research must increasingly be global and comparative. Australian researchers have led development of an international consortium of University-based free-access providers of legal information that rival commercial sources, and run one of the hubs of its network (WorldLII). This project will develop a set of tools which can be deployed by all Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) in or joining the network to provide synchronisation, stability, redundancy and load balancing for each LII, improving network reliability and speed. Provisions for shared metadata will facilitate the development of high quality research tools which will benefit all areas of law.
