PLAN OF THE WORK.
TO give an immediate, full, and accurate account of
every important Decision in the several Courts at Westminster is the primary object of this Publication; the utility of which to every one who practises the Law, and still more to those who administer it, is too obvious to be enlarged upon. To the Student also it will be found a fource of necessary knowledge, and to the Private Gentleman a fund of useful information.
In the course of the Work, every important object depending before the Legislature will be constantly noticed ; and a particular account will be given of all Trials, "Criminal or Civil, which involve any important Law point, or materially engage the public attention.
A Publication of this kind seems peculiarly proper at this time, when the Newspapers are daily giving undigested anderroneous accounts of Law Cases, which cannot fail to perplex and mislead the Practitioner and the Student; and to betray the people, as circumstances may arise in their own concerns, into mistaken hopes and fears from the justice of the country
It remains only to add, that this Work will be continued Monthly, and no pains or diligence shall
be wanting to render it acceptable to the Profession, instructive to the Student, and useful to that most honourable and beneficial of all public characters, the COUNTRY MAGISTRATE.
