BAILII Extends its Coverage

British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII) has recently extended its coverage (www.bailii.org).

They are now publishing all the substantive judgments of the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal and the Adminstrative Court as soon as they are handed down in court or (if delivered orally) made available in an approved transcript. They will soon be publishing a larger selection of the judgments of the Criminal Division of the Court of Appeal as soon as they become available. There are plans also to increase the availability of High Court Judgments and to make a start in publishing the decisions of the leading appeal tribunals.

Executive Director Joe Ury adds "We now also have the recent Employment Appeal Tribunal Decisions and we are working on the back set of them. Also we are working on the reported decisions and stared decisions from the Immigration Appeal Tribunal."

Donations of any size are welcomed by BAILII - if you think that access to the law should be free, please consider a donation. I myself contribute £1 for every subscription I receive to the Internet Newsletter for Lawyers - I have just sent off £1,000 for the second year running.
