UK law reporting history

Those who have occasion to explain the origins of law reporting to graduates or students in 2016 might enjoy this brief article by Ruth Bird, Bodleian Law Librarian at the University of Oxford. On the International Association of Law Libraries' blog, Ruth offers "a glance at law reporting in the common law world", concisely explaining the practices that led to England's Nominate Reports through to reform and standardised in the mid-1800s with the Council of Law Reporting.
