Seminar Details: Free access subject resources – The International Privacy Law Library

Speaker: Graham Greenleaf has a research appointment as Professor of Law & Information Systems at UNSW Australia. He has held Visiting Fellowships at Universities in Edinburgh, London, Seoul, Korea, and Hyderabad, India. His current areas of research focus are Asian data protection and privacy laws, public rights in copyright, and the globalisation of free Internet access to legal information. He is a co-founder and Co-Director since 1995 of the free-access Internet law service, the Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII). In 2010 he was made a member of the Order of Australia (AM) for his contributions to advancing free access to legal information, and to the protection of privacy.

Abstract: This presentation demonstrates and explains the International Privacy Law Library on WorldLII, as an example of how free access LIIs can collaborate to build a global research resource on a specific legal topic, and do so on a low and sustainable budget. Parts of the Library’s development and maintenance are automated, parts are not. A paper on the Library is available from SSRN at <>.
