Neutral Citations

To help deal with the identification of cases, the England and Wales courts introduced Neutral Citations in 2001 – assigned by the Courts rather than independent publishing houses.  

The following is an example:

[2004] EWHC 2910 (Ch)

This introduction of neutral citations improved identification of cases between series, as well as making the citation of unreported case law much easier. Many other jurisdictions such as Australia and Canada also have a similar system.
