Historic Court Cases & Annual Lecture Transcripts

We are dedicated to enriching both students’ and practitioners’ learning through a number of events and unique publications.

One of the ways in which we do this is through our free exclusive downloadable PDF’s which range from Annual Lecture Transcripts to our collection of historic cases, including our Special Issue. These materials are offered to you free of charge and for immediate download.

One of our most popular PDF’s is the Special Issue which features ten of the most significant cases that we have published since our launch in 1865. This is a particularly exciting publication as it features the cases that all law students should know and allows practitioners the opportunity to reminisce. Two of the featured cases have actually inspired Annual Lectures.

In February 2002 The ICLR held its first lecture. The talk was given by Professor Brian Simpson who examined the case of R v Dudley and Stephens (1884) 14 QBD 273 (one of the Special Issue cases). The lecture was such a success that it was repeated in November that year in Manchester, and it was decided that the Council would make this an annual event based around a case or cases reported in The Law Reports.

We have been extremely fortunate with our Annual Lecture events in securing such prominent legal practitioners over the last nine years and we feel that this event, which usually offers one hour’s worth of CPD points from the Bar Council, will continue to grow in popularity and importance with the legal profession.
