One of the oldest series of law reports in the world, The Criminal Appeal Reports, reached its 100th anniversary in 2009. First published in 1909, after the new Court of Criminal Appeal was established by the Criminal Appeal Act 1907, the Reports provide extensive coverage of all major criminal appeal cases, including cases not reported elsewhere.
They are widely regarded by both practitioners and academics as the first source of reference for criminal cases and are frequently cited in court, and have been described by Lord Chief Justice Judge as the "series of choice" for criminal practitioners.
The Criminal Appeal Reports:
- Covers all major criminal appeal cases in one source
- Judgments revised by the Court of Appeal itself
- Full text judgments with detailed headnotes
- Contains a key word index for ease of use
- Detailed cross-referencing to Archbold
