Found Another Australian Legal Research Blog

We discovered an Australian Legal Research blog today that we’ve not been aware of…

Entitled Legal Research Rescue it’s authored by Lauren Austin an ex lawyer now working in legal research at Australian mega firm, Mallesons.

This is what she says about herself and the blog:

Legal Research Rescue (LRR) is a place for legal research tips and tricks for junior (and not-so-junior) lawyers, law graduates and law students.

LRR is written by Lauren Austin, a legal research and training specialist for a leading Australian law firm (and a particularly traumatised ex-lawyer).

Lauren has also produced legal conferences and training for Australia’s largest legal publisher and is currently completing her Cert IV in Training and Assessment.

You can also follow her on Twitter at:

After a dearth of legal library / research blogs in Australia it’s good to see we now have two useful blogs popping up in the past few months. the other being Linda Moore’s blog  KM Librarian
