Australian Legal Resources for Indonesia
Monday, 9th October 2000 at 12:10 pm

The Australian judiciary has taken on a number of projects to assist the justice system in Indonesia through Australian Legal Resources International.

ALRI was set up in 1993 to support human rights, democracy and justice in developing countries as a result of the overseas experience of its chairman, the Hon. Justice Marcus Einfield AO.

ALRI Vice President, Peter Short says for the past six months it has been running a judicial program including training for Indonesian judges in Melbourne and Sydney as well as sending judges to Indonesia to run training sessions.

ALRI has also assisted the Indonesian Government by organising anti-money laundering seminars.

Peter Short says ALRI’s assistance to developing countries concentrates on strengthening and building the capacity of legal institutions in their society .

One of the ALRI’s objectives is to enlist the voluntary assistance and support of Australian lawyers and professionals as well as develop their skills so that they can help the disadvantaged people in Australia and overseas.

Resource assistance is another vital arm of ALRI.

Peter Short says in Australia hundreds of thousands of legal books and materials are thrown away each year such as textbooks, law reports, journals and teaching materials.

‘A text that is old in Australia can be ideal in a developing legal system.’

ALRI has collected, collated and shipped more than 100,000 legal textbooks and law reports around the world and in some cases provided entire legal libraries. The books are donated by judges, lawyers, legal publishers and law libraries.
