The goal of TaiwanLII is to promote free access to law under the auspices of the LII Families. To achieve free access to law, there are distinctive obstacles in different countries and areas, which may involve economic, political, socio-cultural, structural or a mixture of various factors. Therefore, strategies must be set to move local obstacles with short-term and long-term missions. The short-term task of TaiwanLII is to work closely with the LII friends and design a culturally-situated strategy to promote free access to law in a capitalist Chinese society with a continental law system. To help with this, the TaiwanLII e-courses may serve as models to develop promotion programmes for an easy access, which is the substance for "free access” with no knowledge barriers.
To promote global justice in cultural pluralism, the importance of setting up TaiwanLII is not only to join the world coalition of free law movement, but further to develop a rule-of-law model in the contemporary capitalist democracy that bears a Confucius tradition in local social-engineering while enjoying advanced technologies to connect to the world. TaiwanLII will seek collaborations with other LII institutions and friends to conduct cross-boundary socio-legal studies despite differences or disparities in languages, jurisdictions, cultures or legal systems. It is our ambition to set up a “Contextual Information of Law Database” under the LawPack project.

The Taiwan Legal Information Institute (TaiwanLII) aims to assemble an academic-based coalition and promote free access to law. We emphasize the effective use of legal information for transnational and contextual research and teaching on comparative laws. The penetration of global law in the information society will gradually change the practice of legal profession and affect the substance of rule-of-law. In the post-modern civilisation, accessibilities to pluralistic legal information with all socio-cultural variables may become crucial for the understanding and promotion of the global rule-of-law. Thus, we need to work hand in hand. Please join us to share!
