Adjudication Case Database

Disputes arising out of the process of adjudication, statutory or otherwise, has yielded an unprecedented volume of case law. Coulson J, speaking extra-judicially, has commented that the popularity of adjudication was such that, in its first 10 years, it generated the equivalent of roughly 100 years of case law and Sir Rupert Jackson aptly commented that the mass of authorities on adjudication forms an ‘impenetrable jungle’.

Whilst a database of reported judgments pertaining to construction adjudication is maintained by Bailli, and paid for services such as Westlaw and Lexis Nexis, none of these databases hold a complete catalogue and what is more, the search functionality is often limited to all or part of a case name or a date range.

Eversheds Sutherland has created a database which contains the most comprehensive collection available of reported construction adjudication cases decided by the courts of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland since the coming into force of the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 on 1 May 1998. Furthermore, the search capability within the database allows users to search in a variety of different ways with the result that it is a dynamic research tool for users.
