Judges and the law

4.2.5 Weekly Law Reports (citation WLR)

These have also been published by the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting since 1953 and, although they are not reports of cases decided in the current week as the name might suggest, they are produced much more quickly than the Law Reports. The need for speed means that these reports do not contain counsels' arguments, nor do they enjoy the benefit of judicial correction before printing. There are four volumes of reported cases, the latter two containing the cases that will also appear in the Law Reports.
