The Need and importance of Supreme Court case law
Rulings of the Supreme Court are the law of the land under Article 141 of the Constitution. They have a bearing on the validity and applicability of Acts of Parliament, State Legislatures and various rules and notifications issued by various governmental authorities. Thus, Supreme Court case law is a paramount necessity for the judiciary and practitioners in the Supreme Court, the High Courts and District Courts as well as the academic community, commercial establishments, private and public sectors, and government offices amongst others.
Philosophy behind SCC™: Prompt, Accurate and Complete
A law report is of value not just for a few decades, but for eternity. That is the prime consideration driving Supreme Court Cases™. That is why great pains are taken and efforts made at Supreme Court Cases™ to accurately publish every judgment or order. Equally important is that the entire Supreme Court case law be made available, and hence the efforts to achieve completeness. Again, while making efforts for being prompt we make sure not to be hasty, engaged as we are in producing a permanent record of the Supreme Court.
