Look at the law reports; they summarise. It is not difficult.
Remember, ratio is strictly the reason the decision was reached (X = Y). If this were the case, then our decision might be different is dicta. When you're reading summaries, note that these suppositions are not what you're looking for.Last edited by Notoriety; 19-02-2018 at 21:24.
