AsianLII Offers Free Access to Asian Legal Information

From "About" AsianLII:

Developed by the Australasian Legal Information Institute
(AustLII), AsianLII is a non-profit, free access website for
legal information from all 27 countries and territories in Asia.

AsianLII offers searching and browsing of the following
databases: legislation, case-law, law reform reports, law
journals and other legal information (where available)
for each country in the region. It currently provides access
to nearly 100 databases from almost all 27 Asian countries.
Over 140,000 cases from at least 15 countries, and over 15,000
pieces of legislation from at least 18 countries will be searchable.

All databases can be searched simultaneously, or searches can
be limited to one country’s databases or other combinations.
Search results can be ordered by relevance, by date, or by
database. For every country, AsianLII contains an extensive
catalog of law-related websites for that country, and a ‘Law
on Google’ facility assists users to search Google for legal materials
from that country.
