JustCite is a legal citator and search engine for researching UK statutes and cases. It cross-references UK cases, legislation, and secondary commentaries to allow researchers to find related materials. It works very similarly like the Westlaw Keycite and Quicklaw Note Up service. Today, JustCite launched the “Precedent Map” feature, allowing the visualizing of relationships between cases.
In these maps, coloured arrows are used to distinguish positive, negative, and neutral judicial treatment. The size of the case display in these maps indicate the commonality between the main case and the “related case”. The bigger the display, the more closely related the two cases. For more information about JustCite and the new precedent map, please check it out here.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has recently launched a FREE online database on customary international humanitarian law (IHL). This database is an expansion of the 2005 published study of IHL, conducted by ICRC in consultation with experts from around the world. It includes two parts.
Part One offers a comprehensive analysis of the customary rules of IHL deemed applicable in international and non-international armed conflict. Part Two contains a summary of State practice relating to most aspects of IHL, as expressed in national legislation, military manuals, official statements, and case law, and the practice of other entities such as international organizations and international courts and tribunals.
One can either search or browse the database and the content, especially the State practice part, will be updated regularly.
