Queensland Law

The Queensland Law Collection contains historical Queensland legislation and other legal materials relating to Queensland. It makes materials available to researchers online that were once only accessible in a relatively small number of libraries.

The collection includes:

Queensland Statute Reprints, an occasional series of reprinted statutes and regulations sometimes referred to as the “White Reprints”, produced between the publication of the 1962 Queensland Statutes reprint and the Reprints Act 1992 (Qld).

The Public Acts of Queensland 1828 – 1936 : a reprint of Queensland law as at 1 January 1937, authorised by the Attorney-General of Queensland and published by Butterworth & Co.

Commencement legislation 1793 - 1867 (for Queensland)

The digitization of the materials in this collection was originally commenced under the aegis of Ozcase, a web collaboration project started in 2004 and sponsored by a number of Queensland law libraries, in particular those of the Queensland University of Technology, The Department of Justice and Attorney-General, Bond University, Griffith University and the University of Queensland. Completion of the digitization of the Queensland Statute Reprints has been made possible by the generous financial support of the Australian Law Librarians Association (Queensland). The Crown Law Library (Queensland) and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Library supplied materials from their collections to ensure that the Queensland Statute Reprints are as complete as possible.
