Case law reference materials all in one place
For background information about case law, legislation, the courts and the legal system, check out the Knowledge section of our website. There’s a growing glossary of legal terms and the answers to many Frequently Asked Questions about ICLR and legal matters generally.
What’s the difference between a law report and a (judgment) transcript? What do I call the judge? How do I link to ICLR content on my blog? All this and more can be answered, along with definitions of Ademption, Bona vacantia, Contra proferentem, and other confusing jargon from A to Z.
There is also a Guide to UK law reports and their citations, an Interactive guide to the different elements of a law report and an explanation of how we categorise different judicial considerations or treatments of previous case law (what’s the difference between Followed, Applied and Approved, for example).
If there’s a case law conundrum that’s got you puzzled, let us know. We are constantly adding to this store of knowledge, and want to make it as useful as possible.
