Catherine Macgill (Law Librarian, Law Library, Supreme Court of WA)

states -

The current state of plans for the future of the Law Library collection is as follows.

The recommendation to the Attorney General is that practitioners will have access to the new Supreme Court Library on a user-pays basis.  There has not as yet been any memorandum of understanding drawn up.

A project team to resolve the issue (among other things) of service to practitioners is to be established with members from the Law Society, the Legal Practice Board, the Judiciary and the Department of the Attorney General.  This committee has not yet met.

The State Reference Library and the City of Perth Library have been approached with the view to housing a law collection for public access.  Neither party was interested in doing so.
