Over 60 new cases added every week to a huge collection, including numerous important unreported precedents
Like its civil counterpart, the England and Wales Criminal Appeal Judgments is the largest and most easily searchable repository of Court of Appeal (and other courts – see Coverage above) decisions, its archive from 1963 to 1989 being electronically exclusive to Justis.
While most precedents are reported in law reports, a significant number are not, and the selection process for reporting cases can be highly subjective. Furthermore, reported cases take time to be published, and many cases with facts that most closely match yours can be omitted from the major series.
Providing a wealth of browsable full-text material, these series address these issues. Along with a new route to popular material, they make available tens of thousands of otherwise hard-to-find cases, which will help support arguments relating to verdicts and sentencing.
Complementing your other series on Justis and elsewhere, the England and Wales Criminal Appeal Judgments collection:
…every decision of the Court of Appeal on a point of law is binding on all courts of first instance and on the Court of Appeal itself. No matter whether the decision is reported in the regular series of Law Reports, or is unreported, it is binding. Once you have the transcript of an unreported decision, you can cite it as of equal authority to a reported decision, so it behoves every counsel or solicitor to find, if he can, a case – reported or unreported – which will help him advise or win his case.
This work of Mr Tunkel [who worked on the 1951 – 1980 section of the series in hard copy] is a valuable tool to use. But these transcripts are not only for lawyers – they are for students of history and sociology as well. Nearly every contemporary event has its repercussion in the courts of law. By reading these transcripts in future times, historians will be able to see the pattern of family life, social conditions, and business affairs in far more real terms than by any other means.
