Key Passages

The key passages tool shows you the most cited passages of a judgment. These are a reflection of the most influential parts of the judgment since it was handed down. The key passages update over time according to subsequent decisions.

  1. View the most cited passages of a judgment displayed in the left analysis panel.
  2. Click Highlight all quoted passages to see which sentences of the judgment have been subsequently quoted in a later case. The shade of highlighting depends on how often the sentence has been cited.
  3. To see which cases referred to the sentence, click on the highlighted passage. A pop-up list will appear showing you the case name, paragraph number and court.
  4. To link directly to subsequent references, click on the case name or paragraph number.
