I only want to find cases in my results.
If you only want to search for case law, you can either use our Browse feature or the Advanced Search option to do this.
To use the Browse feature, select 'Browse' from the left-hand menu. The first option you select will enable you to choose between Cases, Statutes, Statutory Instruments and EU law. Following this, you can then browse by jurisdiction, court, year, reported series, year reported, and category of law up to three levels deep.
The orange 'show documents' button will display the search for results for your selected browsing options.
You can also make a search for only cases by selecting the Advanced Search tool from the left-hand menu side of the platform, and selecting the 'cases' tab along the top row:
Here, you can fill in the appropriate boxes with the partial information that you have as well as use any of our search operators. This is useful if you want to find a particular phrase within the full text of a case or a case from a particular year relating to a particular category of law. Again, any results will be based on your main jurisdiction settings. (Note that the tick box options on the right-hand side are only available when you have that jurisdiction set in your main settings).
