New Practice Direction: Citation of Authorities

  • New Practice Direction: Citation of Authorities

    A new Practice Direction on Citation of Authorities has been issued, repealing older Practice Directions on the topic, and came into force on 24 March. It applies throughout the Senior Courts of England and Wales, including the Crown Court, in county courts and in magistrates' courts. The PD sets out which set of reports should be cited in preference to others and clarifies use of law reports produced from electronic versions.

    The full Practice Direction can be read on the Judiciary website.
