Service Strengths

  • View decisions by module, date or subject
  • Early access to full text: The full text of new decisions of relevance to any of the ORIL modules is sourced by the reporters for that module as soon as possible after the judgment is given or the decision is made
  • Publication of full case reports and analysis
  • Translations of non-English decisions: For decisions given in languages other than English, OUP will publish any available official English language translation at the same time as the full case report. Where no official translation is available, OUP will commission translations of key passages of the judgment, present those translated passages alongside the original language judgment, and link to them from the case report
