Our developers have been busy further refining the functionality of the Victorian Reports portal (www.victorianreports.com.au) to make it easier for VR subscribers to work with content from within JADE.
VR subscribers can jump straight to the authorised report of a decision with one click. Without a subscription, users are able to view the catchwords of the decision and an excerpt of the headnote and make a once-off purchase a copy of the authorised report in digital format or subscribe to the Victorian Reports online or in print, or both!
Launch of inaugural Summer CPD Series presented by Little William Bourke
We launched our Little William Bourke inaugural Summer CPD Series – a great event chaired by the editor of Victorian Reports, Mr Peter Willis SC with an esteemed panel comprising of Mr Charles Gunst QC; Mr David Levin QC; Mr David Klempfer; and Ms Katie Stynes. The event was kindly hosted by VicBar and held at Owen Dixon Chambers in the Neil McPhee Room. The session involved an informative lunchtime discussion of cases reported in Victorian Reports as they relate to solicitors’ duties and overarching obligations owed to clients by those members of the Bar involved in the reported cases.
Alerts – Cases to be Reported
In 2018, we will introduce alerts to notify VR subscribers of cases selected to be reported in forthcoming volumes of the Reports to assist practitioners identifying those cases which impact on the application of the law in advance of publication of the authorised report.
We continue to publish the Victorian Reports in print and online, offering democratic access to all with flexible pricing models. Little William Bourke, the sister organisation of JADE and publisher of the Victorian Reports, believes that practitioners and the public alike should have affordable access not only to the decisions published by the Court, but also the informative insights of practitioners who dedicate their time to reporting decisions of legal and practical significance to the development of Victorian and Australian law.
