  1. Case citation

    Case citation is the system used in many countries to identify the decisions in past court cases, either in special series of books called reporters or law reports, or in a "neutral" that identifies a decision regardless of where it is reported. Although case citations are formatted differently in different jurisdictions, they generally contain the same key information. A citation is defined as a "reference to a legal precedent or authority, such as a case, statute, or treatise, that either substantiates or contradicts a given position". Where cases are published in paper format, the citation usually contains the following information: ⁕Report title ⁕Volume number ⁕Page number ⁕Year of decision In some report series, for example in England and Australia, the volumes are not numbered independently of the year: thus the year and volume number are required to identify which book of the series has the case reported within its covers. In citations of this type it is usual in these jurisdictions for square brackets "[year]" to be applied to the year.
