“Being able to track bills through Parliament is a very unique and useful feature in LawOne. We have been watching a few key pieces of legislation and it has been really beneficial to be alerted from the draft announcement right though to assent.”

“I find the Search functionality in LawOne to be more reliable than other services. I can easily browse when I am not quite sure what I am looking for and the basic and more advanced search options cater to a wide variety of skills and preferences. I always go to LawOne first.”

“Covering all Australian jurisdictions, all in the one place, is the reason why I keep coming back to LawOne. I can search across all jurisdictions, or just a few, or across a legislative instrument… the options are very flexible.”

“While not primarily a case repository, we do find the CaseLink service to be very valuable when we are looking at sections of legislation.  The highlighting of specific, “important” cases only really saves a lot of time and can provide vital information to assist in interpretation of various sections.”  

“TimeBase Point-in-Time is a totally unique service. We could not do without it.”
