Virtual Legal Library (VLL)

The Supreme Court Library Queensland has negotiated with several major legal publishers to expand the range of online legal resources to be made available remotely at no cost to sole practitioners or micro firms through the Virtual Legal Library (VLL).

Sole practitioners are the initial beneficiaries, with the first group gaining access in August 2016. All sole practitioners who are Queensland Law Society members have been emailed their login details to enable them to access to VLL. Micro firms (five or fewer practising certificates) will follow.

These resources from leading suppliers such as CCH, LexisNexis and Thomson Reuters include key online publications in the areas of civil, criminal and family law. Among the 138 titles available in VLL are Australian Criminal Reports, Australian Corporation Law, Australian Family Law and Practice, Carter's Criminal Law Queensland, Civil Procedure Queensland, Commonwealth Law Reports, Expert Evidence, and Motor Vehicle Law Queensland.

Online catalogue and request

You can submit requests for document delivery or research by completing the relevant form:

  1. Document Delivery form for requests where specific citation information is provided.
  2. Research Request form for requests requiring more general searches.

The Supreme Court Library is a highly-valued resource for QLS Members conveniently located in the Brisbane CBD. But there is often no need to visit the library in person, as members can search the catalogue and submit requests straight from this section of the QLS website.

QLS Members are also able to search SCQL's online catalogue and search the Proctor index.
