About Us

Australia’s leading library of practical legal guides; written by lawyers, for lawyers.


Every piece of content is authored or reviewed by a solicitor or barrister practising in the applicable state or federal jurisdiction.

With over 7,000 precedents, 140 end-to-end matter guides and 11 reference guides, we offer practical and professional guidance for all major areas of law.

A team of over 40 legal professionals update content to reflect legislative changes, so you can be confident that you’re working with the latest forms, precedents and matter commentary.  

For more information about the Authors, please visit our Authors page. 

By Lawyers is designed to help you find precise answers, quickly. Commentaries explain how to conduct each step of the matter, so you have the freedom to access as much (or as little) guidance as you need. Check how to execute one part of a matter, or find end-to-end advice for a matter type you haven’t handled, or haven't handled for a while. Use the Reference Guides to delve deeper into the law and practice when required, with interactive lists of contents and links to relevant cases and legislation.

Whatever your area of practice, there are By Lawyers guides and precedents that can help you work faster and smarter.
