When you are looking for UK cases, here are a few resources that may help:
- Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations. Quick way to figure out abbreviations for UK courts, reporters, and other legal jargon.
- United Kingdom Legal Research Guide. This guide by Georgetown law librarians has a lot of excellent information about UK law. The section on Case Law has an explanation of citations and reporters. If they link to their own electronic resources or books, be sure to check the MLaw Library catalog for the same resources.
- ICLR. This is the most comprehensive database on UK law (lots of cases) that the Law Library subscribes to.
- British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII). This is a freely available database of British and Irish primary legal materials.
- Westlaw and Lexis each have UK legal libraries (including case reporters).
Not every resource has the same coverage. You may need to look in multiple places to find the reporter, case, or other item you're looking for.
