Extended access to Virtual Legal Library for some QLS members during COVID-19

With our cooperation, your law library SCLQ has negotiated a temporary extension of access to its popular Virtual Legal Library (VLL) service for a wider group of Queensland lawyers.

VLL provides free online access to a range of key legal commentaries, textbooks and reference works from commercial legal publishers.

Access is ordinarily restricted to full QLS members who are sole practitioners or from a firm with 5 or less practising certificates. However, the majority of VLL resources will be temporarily available to full QLS members in firms with between 6 and 10 practising certificates during COVID-19, to assist you while you are working remotely.

This special extended access will initially be available from midday Thursday 7 May 2020 until at least the end of May, at which time the arrangements will be reviewed in light of prevailing pandemic restrictions, and potentially extended into June.

If you meet the extended eligibility requirements, visit sclqld.org.au/vll to apply for access.

We are grateful to CCH Australia and LexisNexis for generously agreeing to temporarily extend access to all their VLL titles at no cost, in response to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on the legal profession. We also acknowledge the valuable content provided via VLL by Federation Press and Oxford University Press.

Contact the library if you have any questions or require assistance accessing or using VLL.
