|Context, Ltd. has announced that it has added the Mental Health Law
Reports and Prison Law Reports case law databases to Justis.com, its online
legal research service. The company also announced the completion of the
Justis UK Statutory Instruments database with the addition of all Statutory
Instruments (SI) issued prior to 1986.
Case Law Databases
Mental Health Law Reports brings all cases relating to mental health
law together in one place for legal professionals who work in public law
and the administrative courts. Prison Law Reports aggregates unreported
cases that deal with prison law into a database that is geared toward criminal
Both of the new databases include the full text of cases from the High
Court, Court of Appeal, and House of Lords. They also feature a summary
of and, where appropriate, commentary about each case. Cases from the European
Court of Human Rights are also covered. Around 75 percent of the cases
included in the databases are unreported elsewhere.
UK Statutory Instruments
This new archive database includes all modern-style SIs published since
1949 as well as the legislation published in Statutory Rules & Orders
and Statutory Instruments Revised to December 31, 1948, which was printed
by HMSO in 1950.
UK Statutory Instruments, which has been added to Justis, is available
in both CD-ROM and Web versions and is contained in a separate database
from the post-1986 data. As with all Justis databases, the archive and
the more recent material can be searched simultaneously or separately.
UK Statutory Instruments complements the Justis UK Statutes database,
which contains the full text of all Acts of Parliament in England, Wales,
and Scotland from the Magna Carta to the present day. It is the only statute
law database to feature Scottish Acts of Parliament and repealed legislation.
