What is on Clicklaw and what is not

We link to laws and cases but that isn't the main purpose of the site. Instead, the resources available through Clicklaw were designed to be used by the public and those helping the public.

Resources from other organizations (in addition to our 25+ core contributors) are being added to the site by the Clicklaw team, guided by the content criteria & guidelines.

Clicklaw values your feedback

In 2009 we launched as a beta website. We made some changes throughout the years, including taxonomy updates, helping users find resources in languages other than English, and feedback forms. We made the site mobile-friendly in 2015 and took steps to improve accessibility gradually from 2018 to 2021. We continue to seek feedback and find ways to make the site easier to use and more accessible.

Help us improve by contacting us or commenting on the Clicklaw blog.
