New vLex and Juta partnership brings South African case law to a global audience


Later this year, there will be expanded potential for comparative research of South African case law, in addition to legal information from over 130 jurisdictions, on a single platform.

A recent agreement between vLex and Juta will make an extensive collection of South African case law and authoritative reported series widely available to the legal industry around the world.

This new collection will provide access to around 80,000 cases from Southern African courts, dating back to 1910, including cases from The South Africa Law Reports, South Africa Criminal Law Reports, South African Appellate Division Reports as well as Juta’s Unreported Judgments series.

Artificial intelligence and South African law

Accessing the new collection on vLex’s legal research platform will bring intuitive search and analysis tools to South African legal information. For example, the AI-powered legal research assistant, Vincent, will identify important cases by combining human search behaviour with machine speed. Also, visualisation features such as the Precedent Map and Key Passages will allow for new insights to be drawn from this vast collection of legal information.

Masoud Gerami, Managing Director of vLex Global Markets, discussed the importance of this new collection:
“We are excited to make this significant collection available more widely, and we are confident that researchers and academics around the world will benefit from such comprehensive coverage. South Africa was one of the first regions we had considered to enhance the range of content that we offer from vLex, and we are very happy to have achieved this by having a partner of the quality and pedigree of Juta.”

“Juta is delighted to be partnering with vLex on this important initiative”, says Kamal Patel, CEO of Juta and Company. “It will enhance and broaden the availability of our trusted case law offerings beyond South African borders, bringing new and innovative solutions to the market. As a South African pioneer of technology-driven legal information solutions, this partnership aligns with our digital transformation objectives, and our commitment to contributing to the rule of law around the globe.”

Access UK dockets alongside case law with vLex Justis


The new way to access UK Dockets.

London, April 2020 – vLex Justis launch a new UK dockets collection from the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court, bringing case law and dockets together on a single intelligent platform for the first time. Uniquely, this collection is available without timed access restrictions, or the need to pay per session.

All superior court dockets available in one place

vLex Justis is the only research platform that makes UK dockets available alongside primary and secondary sources from over 130 jurisdictions, including the largest collection of UK superior court judgments available anywhere online and comprehensive as-enacted UK legislation.

Containing over 20,000 recent UK dockets, this new and regularly updated collection will enable law firms, barristers’ chambers, due diligence professionals and corporate investigations firms to easily search, download, share and create email alerts for new dockets with ease.

vLex Justis has made dockets available for ongoing access, so researchers no longer need to wait or request access from their organisation, no longer need to visit multiple websites, and are no longer restricted by timed access as they would be with traditional docket services. Larger organisations can also benefit from multiple user access to dramatically reduce the time searching and retrieving documents across teams.

Quickly create email alerts and follow dockets

Only with vLex Justis can users easily explore the full history of a case from docket to judgment and beyond to any appellate stages; the ability to follow a docket and be notified of any update to the progress of a case is available for all vLex Justis users. Powerful alerting features can be used to inform users when new dockets are added, or when the judgment of a case is available on the service.

To learn more, to experience the benefits of accessing dockets alongside case law on vLex Justis with a free trial, or to arrange an online demonstration or consultation, visit our UK dockets launch page.  Learn more about UK dockets on vLex Justis.
