This Octennial Digest attempts to provide an accurate, comprehensive and dependable source for Supreme Court case law for the period 2001-2008, during which there has been tremendous growth, both in respect of the number of cases decided and the vast areas of the law covered.
The 8 years consolidated material makes possible a more detailed and elaborate synopsis and analysis, with useful editorial notes and annotations wherever relevant. The trend in the decisions is easily visible and appreciated.
Each case has been thoroughly analysed and all the rulings extracted for which that case is a binding authority.
For ease of reference and quick research, the work follows all the three approaches � 1) the topic approach, 2) the statute approach as well as 3) the case-method approach. Elaborate cross-references are given to topic headings under which that statute is covered. The case-method approach enables the reader to reach all the related and latest rulings from any earlier known ruling.
The "Comparative Tables" of citations help in locating the case in SCC from any other citation.
Cross-references to the appropriate headings/sub-headings etc. in Complete Digest of Supreme Court Cases have been provided.
Serves to update the volumes of Complete Digest of Supreme Court Cases that were published in the period 2001-2008.
Contains collection of Notable Excerpts from the learned judgments.
