What is LawNet

LawNet is a service provided by the Singapore Academy of Law. It is a subscription portal that caters to the research and legal information needs of the global legal community. Since its inception in 1988 as a dial up network access provider, www.lawnet.com.sg has grown in leaps and bounds, adding information, applications and databases to suit the evolving needs of legal practitioners, corporate counsel, paralegals, law academics and law students.

LawNet is the authoritative focal point of legal information, combined with user-oriented functionality and data directly provided by The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England & Wales under licence from Eastern Book Company, AustLII, HKLII, Attorney-General's Chambers of Singapore, and the Singapore Judiciary, the Supreme Court and State Courts of Singapore. Subscription information for each of the modules can be found below.
