Foundations of the Common Law Library (ARC LIEF grant administered by The University of New South Wales) (2018–2019)

The free access 'Foundations of the Common Law Library' project will build the most comprehensive historical legal resource for the whole common law world, 1215-1914. It will include reported cases from superior courts (and selected others) in all common law jurisdictions. Databases of other key materials (treatises, legislation, treaties etc) will also be added wherever possible. Databases of case law extracted from newspaper reports, prior to formal law reporting will be included. Citations for all documents added will expand greatly an automated international historical citator to the whole of the common law world, linking past and present. Other data representation tools, including for data visualisations, will be developed.
