In the UK we have a Common Law system sometimes called Case law. A Precedent or an Authority establishes a principle or rule to be followed when deciding later cases. When a case is decided by a higher court this establishes a Binding Precedent on the lower courts and must be followed by that court. When a matter is decided by a higher court that establishes important legal principle or forms new law this is called a Landmark Decision. Below we have gathered Landmark Decisions to assist an litigator put together their Case listing the name of the case and the decision followed by a link to the full Court ruling.
To help you find your Precedent we now list the case number which start at 1 for the oldest case. Then in the next column we have shown a few key words which serve as a short reference as to the finding on a particular case.
