Some Useful Links

Scottish Council of Law Reporting

The SCLR has commissioned a series of five linked short films about law reporting in Scotland and the place of law reports in Scottish legal practice. The celebrated case of Donoghue v. Stevenson provides a useful theme as the role of precedent in the work of lawyers and the courts is explained.
The films are presented (they are on YouTube) as a free educational resource, especially useful for those seeking to understand the role of law reports as a primary source of law.

The five films are:
Donoghue v. Stevenson: The History of Law Reporting
The Law of Judges: Precedent and the Criteria for the Reporting of Cases
Anatomy of the Law: The Authority, Authorship and Arrangement of Session Cases
In the Case Of: Using the Reports
Books and Bytes: Accessing the Reports
