Visualisation. Innovative graphical analysis tools allow you to see links and connections between cases and discover additional relevant material. Reveal hidden relationships and historical connections. Select cases for further analysis and reporting.

Legislation. Legislation in JADE gives you the current text and section-by-section identification of cases citing the relevant provision. Brilliant!

Practice Collections. Dynamic collections of key cases and legislation in selected topic areas. Use ours, or create your own and let JADE update them for you.

JADE is a free professional legal research platform designed to make it easier to find, use, share, and present accurate legal information.

JADE contains the full text of 190,000 Australian decisions and legislation. It has an amazing citator containing references to more than 5.7 million citations to decisions and legislation from around the world, linked to particular page references.

With the launch of the new JADE Professional product in December 2012, we now offer premium features to JADE users.

Why subscribe to JADE Professional?

If JADE will always be free, why consider the professional version? It’s worth it. The professional features complement JADE and allow you to get the most out of JADE with real benefits to your legal research results, including:

  • superior analysis and visualisation tools to make sure that you find relevant material;
  • streamlined and offline access to your annotations and case notes for extra convenience; and
  • dynamic case law annotations for legislation to save you time and ensure you consider the latest or most important decisions.

JADE Professional costs just $40 per month. Even if you only use JADE Professional once a month to check important submissions or advice, the time you will save far exceeds this cost.

Our commitment to you

We created JADE Professional to ensure that JADE is sustainable for the long term for all and to continue our commitment to innovation.

JADE remains a free service which gives you access to the same underlying primary legal materials as found in JADE Professional.

We have pledged that this will always be the case.

Access to JADE will always be free. You will always be able to use JADE for free. It’s your choice.

We will continue to develop and fully support JADE but think that you will choose to subscribe to JADE Professional.

Access to the primary legal materials you find in JADE is made possible only with the ongoing support and encouragement of numerous Australian Courts, Tribunals and Governments.
