Law School Exterior

This practice-facing, decolonisation-minded and best-practice sharing project will create a valuable resource of criminal judgments, drafted by experts on criminal law and procedure from a number of jurisdictions. A comprehensive factual case scenario will form the basis of the judgments, which will be based on the law and practice of each jurisdiction, written in English, but in the style of the relevant court in each jurisdiction.

The project provides a hands-on approach to legal issues, demonstrating different drafting styles across jurisdictions and providing a valuable reference for practical understanding of different judicial cultures. It contributes to contemporary efforts to give a voice to jurisdictions which are not commonly heard on the global scene and could also be used in judicial training.

The judgments for Brazil, Cambodia, China, Germany,  Italy and Poland are now available at the project webpage:

More judgments will follow in due course.
