4.2.3 Modern reports (1865 to present)
As you have seen, the private reports were not without their problems. In addition to, at least occasional, inaccuracy, their publication could be both slow and expensive. This situation was at last remedied by the establishment of the Council for Law Reporting in 1865, subsequently registered as a corporate body in 1870 under the name of the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England and Wales. The council was established under the auspices of the Inns of Court and the Law Society with the aim of producing quicker, cheaper and more accurate reports than had been produced previously.
