Justis Ireland

The Justis Irish core collection is a combination of Justis’s original Irish collection launched in 2012, known as Justis Irish Cases (JIC) and the Bar Council Law Library’s vast archive of unreported cases – previously only accessible to members of the Bar. Justis made these cases available to everyone for the first time in 2016 – creating the largest collection of Irish cases available online.

The Justis Irish Cases (JIC) is an authoritative series of Court of Appeal and Supreme Court Irish cases commonly cited in the Irish Courts, with headnotes written by our editors. These are published within 48-72 hours of a case being handed down in most cases.

Cases are cross-referenced with the Irish Reports & Digests, available as a bolt-on product. 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.

The Irish core includes PDFs of the original court documents, signed and approved by the judges in each case. Case law includes: Supreme Court 1967 onwards High Court 1952 onwards Court of Criminal Appeal 1932 onwards Court of Appeal 2014 onwards Lower Courts 1998 onwards Employment Appeal Tribunal1998 onwards
Including reported and unreported judgments

Legislation includes Statutes 1925 onwards Statutory Instruments 1998 onwards

Irish Reports & Digests from 1838 onwards
The Irish Reports is the most authoritative series of Irish case law, published by the ICLR for Ireland. Reports come from: The Irish Reports Northern Ireland Reports Irish Law Reports Monthly Irish Law Times Reports Irish Jurist Reports Irish Law Journal
The database is updated quarterly. The Electronic Irish Reports contain many references to the electronic Law Reports published by Context and The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England & Wales, all of which act as linkable cross-references for all subscribers to the electronic Law Reports.
