In 2016, AsianLII launched its latest free legal database: the Myanmar/Burma Online Legal Database: http://www.asianlii.org/resources/239.html . The collection includes a wide range of laws, articles, local and international case law and commentaries. It contains case law never made freely accessible online before, such as the All India Reporter Lower Burma series 1907-1922 ; the Upper Burma series 1913-1921, and the Rangoon series 1918-1941; and decisions relating to Myanmar of the Privy Council 1869-1941, among other primary and secondary legal materials. This growing database will be a critical resource for a wide range of legal actors including practising lawyers, government officers, judges, academics, students, and civil society organisations. It will play a crucial role in making law accessible and available in a way that it has not been in Myanmar in the past. In the future, it is hoped that the database will expand to include Burmese language materials. 


How to use guide: An easy to use guide on how to search the database is available at this link: http://www.asianlii.org/mm/virtual_db/Myanmar_DB_intro.pdf 

Background to the AsianLII database: 
The database is developed by Professor Grahaem Greenleaf, Dr Philip Chung, Andrew Mowbray and the team at AustLII. Guidance has been provided by Dr Melissa Crouch and the Australia-Myanmar Constitutional Democracy Project of the University of New South Wales Law Faculty, Australia. The databases in this Myanmar/Burma collection have been developed by the Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII), an institution operated jointly by the Faculties of Law of the University of Technology Sydney and the University of New South Wales. It is committed to  improving access to justice through access to legal information. In 2006, AustLII developed the Asian Legal Information Institute (AsianLII), which now includes over 300 databases from 28 Asian jurisdictions, provided with the cooperation of eight free access Legal Information Institutes (LIIs). AsianLII provides for searching and browsing databases of legislation, case-law, law reform reports, law journals and other legal information, where available, from each country in the region. One aim of the AsianLII project is to assist development of the local capacity of our partner organisations to develop and maintain independent local legal information to the standards of world’s best practice, and to integrate them into international free-access law networks such as AsianLII, CommonLII and WorldLII. Where possible and requested, AustLII will provide technical assistance to our partner institutions to develop these capacities. This may include the provision of AustLII’s Sino search engine and other software for LII development. It may also include AustLII support for applications by local partners to obtain resources. Some in-country training will be provided for our AusAID partner institutions
