Case citators

Case citators are searchable databases of case law that provide additional information to the case itself.

A case citator will generally include catchwords or headnotes to provide the context of the case, cases and legislation cited, and words or phrases judicially considered.

It will also provide information on citing cases and the treatment they have applied, and in some instances, journal articles which have referred to the case.
