Spotlight on CaseCheck

CaseCheck is a current awareness service about Scots law. It covers a wide range of legal topics, including criminal law, family law, mental health law, and taxation. The website is frequently updated with case summaries and articles, which are often written by legal professionals.  You can sign up for a weekly email about recent court decisions and other developments such as new bills, reports and consultations. RSS feeds are also available.


CaseCheck will be of interest to anyone studying or researching the law in Scotland.  Access to the website is free, but you will need to register (at no charge) to use the advanced search features, to comment on posts, and to receive email updates.
