What is FirstPoint?
FirstPoint is an online case law research tool that provides citation information, reliable summaries of important cases and makes it easy to find similar and related cases. It is the only Australian case law research tool with easy subject based browsing, and it provides a single entry hub for a range of case law content including Australia’s largest collection of authorised and specialist law reports.
- Easy to browse: All information in FirstPoint is organised around FirstPoint’s unique legal classification scheme. Using this scheme, it is easy to research a particular legal topic and find cases relevant to that area at a click of a button.
- Easy to search: FirstPoint is designed with simplicity in mind. Searching across First Point’s comprehensive database is as easy as using Google.
- Comprehensive: FirstPoint contains all the same case summary information found in the Australian Digest, the Australian Legal Monthly Digest (ALMD) and the ALMD Advance, all conveniently located in the one easy-to-search database. FirstPoint covers reported cases since 1825 and unreported cases from Sept 1999 – approximately 189,000 cases.
- Well respected: Over 321 000 FirstPoint records exist for Australian cases as well as over 610 000 case citations. Because FirstPoint is built from the most respected legal research products in Australia, the quality of FirstPoint content is always assured.
- Updated daily: FirstPoint users are always up to date because FirstPoint is updated each working day.
