Case law is law developed by judges in courts. Case law research involves reading legal judgments - understanding the reasons behind a judgment and how the law has been interpreted by the judge. Free case law is available on a range of platforms:
SUBSEQUENT CONSIDERATION OF AND IN AUSTRALIAN CASES
AustLII Noteup - when you have located the case you are looking for, the Noteup feature searches for all materials which refer to the current case. This will display all other cases which refer to this case and pinpoints to the relevant paragraphs in the citing cases.
Barnet Jade's Case Trace - a citator feature that appears on the right of the page of every case in JADE - it includes links to the full text of cases your case has cited and to cases which have cited your case - and pinpoints the relevant paragraph in the citing cases.
SUBSEQUENT CONSIDERATION OF AUSTRALIAN CASES IN WORLDWIDE CASES
LawCite - is an automatically generated global case citator, which gathers information from all the Legal Information Institutes (LIIs) worldwide, so that you see where your case is cited in cases in other jurisdictions. It also lists free and subscription journal articles and law reform reports which discuss your case, and legislation which is cited in your case. Cases found in AustLII all have LawCite link beside the case which links straight to the LawCite record.
