ICLR Weekly Case Law Update

Occasionally, members request decisions and legislation from the United Kingdom. In order to fill that need, we subscribe to ICLR, The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting for England and Wales. Each week we receive the Weekly Case Law Update. We plan to make this a regular Monday feature for readers of Great LEXpectations.

If, after reading the digest, you would like a copy of any of the decisions, please contact us and we will be happy to provide it to members of the Law Society of Manitoba.
