What is Casebank and who is it for?

Casedo 200Casedo was delighted to announce the launch of Casebank in August. Following on from this announcement, we’d like to outline why Casebank will be such a useful resource for all legal students.

What is Casebank?

For those new to Casebank, it’s a knowledge base of the essential student cases, annotated by experts and reviewed by top barristers. These Casefiles are annotated with highlighting and explanation of key comments in judgements to ensure that students can understand, apply and analyse them with ease.

What is a Casefile?

A Casefile consists of the judgement of a particular case and a headnote outlining its facts, issue, decision and significance. Every Casefile highlights comments of particular importance and explains their meaning and impact, both to the case itself and to the wider legal system. If you want to see an example take a look at R (Factortame Ltd) v. Secretary of State for Transport (No 2) [1991].

What areas of law does Casebank cover?

We currently cover cases in Criminal, Contract, Constitutional, Property, and European Union law. However, we plan to expand this range to other core student sectors soon.

Who creates the Casefiles?

We recruit recently graduated students from top universities to create our Casefiles. They have received teaching from preeminent members of the legal field, thereby ensuring exceptional understanding of the case they work on. An added benefit of this is that published students receive credit for their work on the Casebank website.

Are the Casefiles quality assured?

We understand that, when using a learning resource, of utmost importance is that the content is correct. We have therefore collaborated with leading barristers, who review every Casefile to check that each key point in a case has been accurately identified and analysed. This guarantees that all Casefiles are of the highest academic quality.

How do I use Casebank?

Anyone can download and access any Casebank Casefiles for free. All that’s needed is a copy of Casedo installed to open the Casefile. Casedo can be used for free by signing yourself up with a 30-day free trial.
