Cases judicially considering legislation

Why find cases judicially considering legislation?

  • Whilst  Parliament is said to 'make the law' the role of the courts is to interpret the law.
  • Courts are responsible for resolving disputes over the meanings of words in legislation.
  • Checking for judicial consideration involves searching for cases in which a section of and Act has been referred to, considered or discussed. 
  • Always check more than one source to ensure your research is comprehensive  and thorough.
