WorldLII Special Project Resources

This is a follow-up to the May 31, 2006 post Privacy Commissioner's Annual Report to Parliament.

The non-profit World Legal Information Institute (WorldLII) website has a special section of privacy law materials.

One can search or browse through the rulings of privacy regulators from numerous countries (Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, United Kingdom, etc.), find privacy newsletters, journals, mailing lists, etc.

The collection is an undertaking of the Interpreting Privacy Principles project (University of New South Wales).

WorldLII is involved in a number of other database projects, in addition to the Privacy Law collection:
  • International Courts & Tribunals Project: "aims to provide a comprehensive search facility for final decisions of all international and multi-national courts and tribunals, whether global or regional"
  • Law Journals Project: "aims to provide a comprehensive search facility for all academic law journals available via WorldLII and other Legal Information Institutes... and the nearly 20,000 law journal articles and academic papers available through the Legal Scholarship Network"
  • Domain Name Decisions Project: "aims to provide a comprehensive search facility for decisions arising out of disputes in relation to Generic Top Level Domains (gTLD) and Country Code Domains"
  • Law Reform Project: "aims to make searchable from one location all of the databases specialising in Law Reform available on any of the Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) that are part of WorldLII"
