Case law & legislation

Ireland

Core package

In 2012, Justis launched its official collection of Irish case law consisting of superior court reported and unreported judgments from 1998 onwards. This collection, known as Justis Irish Cases (JIC), is an authoritative series with headnotes written by our editors and is commonly cited in the Irish Courts.

Written by our editors, the JIC headnotes provide a summary of Court of Appeal and Supreme Court Irish cases. These are published within 48-72 hours of a case being handing down in most cases. Cases are cross-referenced with the Irish Reports and the Irish law Reports Monthly. Lists are also generated of cases and legislation cited by those cases, to note how the citing case has effect on the existing corpus of law.

We are delighted to have now combined our own collection with the Bar Council Law Library’s vast archive of unreported cases. Previously only accessible to members of the Bar, we are pleased to make these documents available to anyone for the first time.

The Ireland core includes PDFs of the original court documents, signed and approved by the judges in each case.
