The Encyclopaedic Australian Legal Dictionary database contains about 20,000 terms and is the first genuinely comprehensive Australian legal dictionary. Definitions are presented in an Australian context and supported by Australian legislative and judicial authority, wherever it exists.
This database provides a comprehensive listing of words and phrases which have either been defined in legislation or judicially interpreted. It includes details of where the word or phrase has been defined and often the context in which the term is defined.

Six legal systems – civil law, common law, customary law, Muslim law and mixed systems – are briefly described, and the world’s “political entities” (mostly countries) are listed and classified according to the system under which they operate. The site is created by JuriGlobe, a research group formed by professors from the Faculty of Law of the University of Ottawa.
