ICLR has been creating case history and supporting the administration of justice for 150 years. In celebration of this we will publish a special Anniversary Edition containing the 15 top cases voted for by you, our readers. We are putting our cases on trial and we need you to give us your verdict.
Each month we will put up a selection of cases for a dedicated period of our history. Vote for the best case, or nominate an alternative. This month the period is 1996-2014.
Voting is easy and all who take part can come to our 150th event in October and claim a free copy of the special Anniversary Edition.
