Case Law

Scope of this Guide

This guide is an introduction to case law research. Case law is the law based on decisions that have been made by judges in the past. Together with statute law, case law is a primary source of law. 

Listed here are the resources as well as the ways and means for effective case law research. While the focus is on Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, legal materials of other common law jurisdictions will also be covered.
