BAILII holds 42 databases covering 7 jurisdictions (including England & Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland,Scotland...). A user can pick individual courts, tribunals or collections of legislation to search or search across the whole seven jurisdictions in one go. Some of these are the Court of Appeal of England and Wales; the Irish Supreme Court; the Northern Ireland Court of Appeal; Scottish Court of Session and High Court; Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and the House of Lords and the European Union as well as full-text legislation databases from Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Law Commission publications are also available. The site uses a neutral form of citation which indicates the court rather than the series of law reports it can be found in - so don't be too confused by this! BAILII's form of citation is the preferred method of citation by the courts.
