Tips for finding full text
Each legal database links you to titles a bit differently and no cross-linking is available. What this means is that if you search for a case in CaseBase e.g. (1992) 175 CLR 1 the citation is not hyper-linked. This is because we receive this title in WestlawAU and you will find that if you use this guide to look up CLR the Available Online link will take you through to WestlawAU.
Two of our major databases Lexis Advance (the international version) and Thomson Reuters Westlaw (not the more commonly used Westlaw AU) do not support "deep linking". Deep linking is what allows you to click on a title and be taken directly to that title.
If the title you require is within Lexis Advance or Thomson Reuters Westlaw you will be taken to the main directory page.
