About Us

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


All By Lawyers content – matter plans, commentary, precedents and reference materials - is written or reviewed by a practitioner with experience in the relevant area of law and the applicable state or federal jurisdiction.

With over 15,000 precedents, 140 end-to-end matter guides and 13 reference manuals, we offer practical and professional guidance in all major areas of law.

A team of over 45 legal professionals update content to reflect changes in the law and practice, so you can be confident that you’re working with the latest forms, precedents and matter commentary.  

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

By Lawyers is designed to help you find practical guidance and 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.
