The summer edition of CaseCheck’s quarterly Case Law Digest, a catalogue of all the case summaries added to CaseCheck’s online database between April and June, has arrived.

Consolidated into one easily searched document, including an introductory summary of some of the most notable judgments contained in the Digest, it makes legal research of the most recently delivered judgments easier. Organised into twenty-nine areas of procedural and substantive law, it covers a wide range of legal issues, from the right of conscientious objection under the Abortion Act 1967, to applications for preliminary rulings relating to intellectual property issues through to the jurisdiction of the UK under the European Convention on Human Rights for the purpose of securing the protection of members of the armed forces’ right to life.

This edition of the Digest also contains some historic judgments, pursuant to our commitment to continuously improve the scope of our database.  These include leading authorities on the court’s approach to ancillary relief under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973.

The Digest is also a handy study tool, providing law students with an insight into the most recent developments in the courts and the legal issues that remain contentious all within one consolidated document.

An extract of the 2012 annual Digest can be viewed here.

Freely available to all subscribers, this most recent edition of the Digest is easy to navigate, printable and available across a wide range of devices. Subscribe for only £8 per month (excl. VAT) today to download your free eBook and access a range of time saving features, including CPD recorder, access to the search function and a personalised virtual library.
