The initiative, which includes a significant consolidation of laws project, demonstrates the commitment of both LexisNexis and the Cook Islands Government to improving the transparency, efficiency and accessibility of legal resources.

“This development not only symbolizes a leap forward in legal accessibility but also strengthens the rule of law in the Cook Islands by ensuring that legislators, legal practitioners, scholars, and the general public have easy and free access to the consolidated legislation of the nation”, LexisNexis and the Cook Islands Government said in a joint media release.

The Laws of the Cook Islands website represents the start of efforts to bolster legal access in the Cook Islands and beyond. The collaboration is being backed by the Cook Islands Parliamentary Services and the Cook Islands Crown Law Office.
