Hier sind aus meiner Sicht wunderbare Lehrfilme für die Rechtsausbildung gemacht worden.

The University of Strathclyde tells us about “The Scottish Council of Law Reporting who has produced a number of short films relating to the Session Cases.

These films give background to the development of the Session Cases and illustrate the use of Session Cases and law reports in general.

These are currently available on the Muckle Hen Productions website.

The films available are:

  • Donoghue v. Stevenson: The History of Law Reporting
  • The Law of Judges: Precedent and the Criteria for the Reporting of Cases
  • Anatomy of the Law: The Authority, Authorship and Arrangement of Session Cases
  • In the Case Of: Using the Reports
  • Books and Bytes: Accessing the Reports”

Muckle Hen Productions: “We have just completed work on a series of films about the history of Law Reporting in Scotland for SCLR , the publisher of Session Cases. The five films were developed as a aid for universities as they introduce first year students to the purpose and content of Law Reports, but will hopefully have interest for a wider audience. The films trace the history of Law Reporting and Session Cases in particular from their 16th century roots through to the up-to-date online reports of today. All of the films are built around the famous case;
Donoghue v Stevenson – the case about the snail in the ginger beer in a wee cafe in Paisley.”


Eine interessante Animation als Cartoon findet man hier:


Bei Donoghue v Stevenson handelt es sich um eine “tort of negligence“-Problematik des englischen  Legal systems.

Lord Atkin formulierte es in Donoghue v Stevenson im Jahre 1932 folgendermaßen:

“You must take reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions which you can reasonably foresee would be likely to injure your neighbour. Who, then is my neighbour? The answer seems to be – those persons who are so closely and directly affected by my act that I ought reasonably to have them in contemplation as being so affected.”
