The South African Law Reports is the premier repository of South African judicial jurisprudence. Published since 1947, The South African Law Reports has an extensive network of reporters. There is a reporter for every court, from which judgments are received, ensuring that all reportable judgments are covered. The judgments are carefully selected and edited by the editors of The South African Law Reports who produce flynotes, headnotes, legislative references and case annotations. The editing process includes the checking of all authority referred to in judgments where this is possible.
The flynote forms the basis of The South African Law Reports indexing system, which has been developed over the years to save practitioners and readers valuable research time. The headnotes are carefully crafted and serve to inform the reader of legal issues decided in the judgment.
Back issues are available from 1947.
