Case citators

What is a case citator?

A case citator is a legal research tool for finding cases by party name/s, citation or topic. Citators allow you to track the history of a case and its subsequent treatment by the courts, as well as determine if a case is still good law. Citators also enable researchers to identify secondary materials which discuss a case as well as legislation judicially considered.

Case citators are available for both Australian and international cases.
