That’s the question raised in a webcast from Outlaw, consisting of an interview with BAILII executive director Joe Ury.
The article based on the Interview, announces that Bailii will shortly publish the 3000 most important decisions in the English common law:
Bailii approached academics at universities all over the UK and asked them to list the most important rulings in their area of expertise. It then sought permission to publish those rulings one by one.
“It’s been a long slog,” said Ury. He said that the project was returned a list of 2,600 judgments, and that it has now published 1,900 of those. He said that in total it will publish 2,900 verdicts by June of this year when the project ends.
