Legislation: Researching legislation

Official sources of legislation

Online versions of legislation are freely accessible via the official Government websites, as provided for each jurisdiction on this guide. These sites are updated regularly but always check the currency of the version of legislation you have.

Print copies of legislation for all Australian jurisdictions are held on level 1 of the Law Library but are often not current, as many jurisdictions have ceased print versions.
