This website presents the first digital catalogue of the ‘Printed Papers’ of Appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (JCPC), which was the final court of appeal for the British empire and later, for several countries of the Commonwealth. The ‘Printed Papers in appeal’ are detailed ‘case-records’ associated with appeal cases heard by the JCPC, which supplement the judgements. This catalogue contains key details for 9,368 cases, decided between 1792-1998, links to full-text judgements from BAILII where available, and the full text Printed Papers for 6 cases.
The Printed Papers contain details about the litigants, their disputes and their social contexts.
The digital catalogue of Printed Papers is under development. Once completed it will offer a searchable database of 10,000 cases.
