Caselaw

Definition

Case law: It refers to decisions, interpretations and judgments given by judges of higher (appellate) courts while interpreting the laws applicable in cases brought before them. Called precedents, they are binding on all courts (within the same jurisdiction) to be followed as the law in similar cases. It is used by advocates to support their views to favor their cases brought before courts in future.In European context, case-law includes judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union and European Court of Human Rights, that are used on national levels of member countries as well.
