How can I tell the difference in quality between case briefs?
Each case brief is assigned a rating. The rating is indicated on each case brief page, as well as in the lists of cases briefs that you’ll find throughout the website.

That being said, many court or tribunal decisions can be interpreted in different ways; there is no single, universally applicable way to brief a particular case. This means that the rating may be of limited use for your particular circumstance.


What do the different ratings mean?
A case brief can have one of seven different possible ratings:

  •  means that there is not enough information for a rating
  •  means that the case brief is in at least 5 briefcases
  •  means that the case brief is in at least 10 briefcases
  •  means that the case brief is in at least 25 briefcases
  •  means that the case brief is in at least 50 briefcases
  •  means that the case brief is in at least 75 briefcases
  •  means that the case brief is in at least 100 briefcases

How is the rating determined?
The rating is primarily determined by how many times a brief has been added to a user’s briefcase. Other factors may also be taken into consideration, such as: the number of comments, how many times the brief has been viewed, links to the brief from other websites, or the number of times the brief has been shared on a social networking site such as Twitter, Facebook or Google+.

Only registered users can add briefs to their briefcase; and registration requires that the user has an email address associated with a university or college.
