The origins of JUSLINE date back to the pioneering stage of Internet: Already in 1995 the first Online Legal Information Service was started. Repeatedly there have been awarded prizes to JUSLINE, amongst others by the WALL STREET JOURNAL as one of the best Internet offers for "business and investing" in Europe. The last years JUSLINE has launched entirely new legal applications which provide and support the principles of Open Content and Open Access (especially open law commentaries and lawyer raster search).
"Jus" derives from the Latin language and means "law" and can be found for example in the word "justice". "Line" bases on the English word “line” like “online”.
