Maintaining separate subscriptions to every series of law reports from 54 Commonwealth countries is both costly and inconvenient. Butterworths' Law Reports of the Commonwealth (LRC) provides a practical and cost-effective alternative. In a single source, LRC provides comprehensive coverage of legal developments throughout the Commonwealth, reporting the key cases whose significance transcends local boundaries.
This set, which contains all the published volumes of the Law Reports of the Caribbean, gives wide coverage of Constitutional law, including the interpretation of Constitutions/Bills of Rights and fundamental rights provisions contained therein. The judgments are reported in full text and the series includes many otherwise unreported judgments. The Editorial Review provides an annual analysis by leading academics of trends and developments in Commonwealth jurisprudence and there is extensive coverage of Privy Council decisions. Key cases of international significance from Commonwealth countries are also included.
Law Reports of the Commonwealth is an indispensable reference source for practitioners, academics, courts, government departments and law libraries everywhere.
The traditional areas of Constitutional law, Criminal law and Commercial law are all covered in detail. Expanded coverage has meant that recent volumes also contain decisions on a variety of other topics, including Arbitration, Conflict of Laws, Environment, Extradition, Human Rights, Immigration, Labour, Property and Tort.
