The Law Reports Complete Set provides a series of reports covering all the important English cases reported since 1865

It is divided into the First Series, covering cases from 1865-1875, the Second Series, dealing with cases from 1875-1890, and the Third Series, which includes cases from 1891 to the present day.

Each case reported consists of a full law report, as produced and edited by our legally qualified team of reporters and editors, with extensive list of cases cited in the judgments and in argument, a headnote which precedes each case and our unique note of argument, which is not produced in any other English series of law reports.

The Law Reports continue to hold the precedent for being the law report series that must be cited above all others in the superior courts in England and Wales and the UK Supreme Court as per the Practice Direction on the Citation of Authorities (2012).

Many purchasers of The Law Reports Complete Set have added to the usefulness by purchasing subscriptions to the continuation volumes. Continuation volumes are published each year, covering Chancery (bound in red), Appeal cases (brown), Queen’s Bench (green), and Family cases (blue). Each continuation volume opens with a list of judges, a table of cases reported, lists of cases, statutes and statutory instruments and international conventions judicially considered, and a list of subject matter giving a brief summary of cases.

The 565 volumes of The Law Reports Complete Set 1865-1971 represented a reduction of some 84 volumes against the original reports. This reduction was achieved by the amalgamation of several of the smaller volumes, while an electronic process ensured that every page is an exact replica of the original.

Each individual division is bound in a different colour to make for ease of identification, greatly speeding up the process of selecting particular volumes.

Now containing over 753 hard cover volumes, this is an essential tool for any legal research library.
