For links to off-site caselaw resources, visit the links page. This page contains information about the Aspals Case database. The Aspals Case Updater is one of the most comprehensive collections of legal decisions impacting the UK military system. The cases listed in the database now include important Human Rights cases from home and abroad, thought to be of interest to practitioners and researchers, together with a number of first instance cases which are not officially reported. Below is a selection of interesting cases, extracted from the more extensive database. Sensitive cases are available only in the Subscribers' Database. To meet the increasing costs of running the site it was necessary to restrict access to the full database of indexed cases and useful documents (for which a subscription is required) via the adjacent search button. While links to free resources are maintained, the site seldom reports military cases and some of the older decisions are now disappearing altogether from access.

An indexed case is a decision where bookmarks have been added to the text, often with hotlinks to relevant law and precedent, thus making research so much easier. They provide easy access to key points of the decision. Corrections to erroneous citations may also made and explanatory notes added where necessary. Indexed cases take quite some time to prepare, so while access is free to members, there is a modest fee for non-sbscribers to reflect the work done. Non-subscribers may purchase an Indexed case by clicking on the flashing Index download button, where available. The blue hypertext links, referencing the decision, are to the database, for which a subscription is required.

If you are not a subscriber, indexed cases will only be provided, on payment, to members of the legal profession. When making your purchase, please specify your chambers/office details and contact telephone number to enable verification. There is a fee charged by PayPal to refund payments, so please be aware if you make a payment and do not meet the criteria for purchase, the refund charge will be deducted.
