Canadian Law & Legislation

Case Law

After a case is decided it could be:

  • appealed or possibly overturned; called judicial history
  • used as precedence or criticized in another case/decision; called judicial treatment

Researching the judicial history and treatment of a case is called "noting up."


Similarly, checking the treatment and application of a statute (or portion of a statute) is also called "noting up."

Noting Up Tool

LexisNexis® Quicklaw has an online citator called Quickcite that notes up cases and legislation.
