The Laws of Australia ‘comes of age’

Legal and tax information solutions provider, Thomson Reuters, is this month marking a major milestone as its best-selling text – and Australia’s most comprehensive legal resource – The Laws of Australia, celebrates its 21st birthday.

For more than two decades, The Laws of Australia has provided a complete library of legal principles, covering more than 320 topics and every Australian jurisdiction. Thanks to its breadth, depth and an easy-to-read style, the text quickly became
Australia’s go-to resource for any legal professional, and 21 years later, this remains the same.

The publication’s Editor-in-Chief, The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, has also been instrumental in its success, playing an active role in steering the text’s development, offering unique industry insight and deciding on new areas of the law to focus on.

To mark the anniversary, Thomson Reuters is this month holding special birthday celebrations for The Laws of Australia, taking place in Sydney and Melbourne. Contributing authors, along with stakeholders and customers will all be in attendance.
