Case citators are an efficient and effective way to research case law.
They provide information about a case including:
- case citation
- relevant keywords
- litigation history of a case
- detail where the case has been reported (including if in an authorised report series)
- previous and subsequent treatment of a case by other cases
- articles that have discussed/mentioned a case
- legislation considered by a case
Case law databases
Case law databases will search not only the relevant case citator, but all relevant databases published by a publisher.
For example, searching Lexis Advance cases will search CaseBase, Australian Current Law Reporter, Unreported Judgments and more.
