Zimbabwe Law Website Launched

The various statutes that make up the law of Zimbabwe are public documents- but have to be purchased. The same applies to the judgements from the highest courts. A new website now makes all of these documents freely available at the click of a link.
 
June 16, 2009 - PRLog -- The various statutes that make up the law of Zimbabwe are public documents. So are judgements from the country’s High Courts and the Supreme Court. The challenge though, has always been access to these documents, until now. A new online initiative now makes all of these documents freely available.

Through a new website, www.law.co.zw, researchers, law students, lawyers and Human Rights activists can now access the legal information they need, at no cost.

The website also features a legal resources directory which lists various lawyers and legal service providers in the country.

The site has been going through a testing phase for its first month of operation and is now open to the public. “There are still other areas of content to be filled in,” said a spokes person for the project managers, “it’s an ongoing project, as new court cases come up, we will add them. We also plan to increase the scope of the site to archiving newspaper articles that cover legal issues.”
