AustLII Toolbar

The AustLII Toolbar allows you to search AustLII from any website page. Additionally it includes the AustLII menu which lists links for most of the major category materials for all Australian jurisdictions and New Zealand.

The drop-down search box also shows your last few searches. If you are using the Microsoft Internet Explorer toolbar, this information is saved across browser sessions.

The buttons on the AustLII toolbar for the other Legal Information Institutes may also be customised (selectively shown/hidden) from the settings menu. The default search type may also be chosen from the settings menu.

There are versions of the AustLII toolbar available for the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser, the SeaMonkey Suite web browser and the Mozilla Firefox web browser.
