What’s the Primary Law Initiative?

While many countries now easily access legislation and jurisprudence at the click of a mouse, reliable and efficient access to up-to-date and properly indexed research material still seems a long way off for others.

In this era of law reform and harmonisation, the need to make definitive, up-to-date editions of legislation and significant court decisions widely accessible is more pressing than ever. Without such resources in place, the government, the legal profession and the general public have no certainty as to the content or application of the law, bringing huge challenges to the fair and efficient administration of justice and concerns amongst would-be investors.

The LexisNexis Primary Law Initiative is a partnership with the government of the client state to bring professional editorial and publishing skills to a project to consolidate, revise and publish its laws and, if desired, the jurisprudence of the state’s courts.
