Law Reports gone from Lexis

The decisions from the most senior courts of England and Wales are reported in the Law Reports, which includes the subseries Appeal Cases, Chancery Division, Family Division, and Queen's Bench. These cases are all the more important because the Law Reports is the Bluebook’s preferred authority for citations.

For some years now, we’ve always guided researchers to either Westlaw or Lexis, because both included Law Reports decisions in their British case offerings. Now this has changed: Lexis no longer offers access to Law Reports cases. From now on researchers who wish to employ word searching with these reporters must use Westlaw.

Of course the Law Library still has these reporters in paper format on the Third Floor, at the following call numbers: Appeal Cases (KD275.4 .L39), Chancery Division (KD276.3 .L39), Family Division (KD279.4 .F35), and Queen's Bench (KD277.7 .L39).
