Welcome to Costs Law Reports

                  Costs Law Reports is the dedicated, authoritative source of costs cases, both civil and criminal. Our reports are regularly cited in the Higher Courts right up to the ECHR.

                  The editors, Teresa Aitken and Master Colin Campbell, select the key costs cases as they are published, and give each of them an incisive and succinct Headnote, alongside the full text of the judgment. 

                  We report over 120 cases a year in print and online with the full, searchable text of all those cases - plus our archive stretching back to 1910 - available on this site.

                  "Costs Law Reports are absolutely vital for all costs draftsmen. The expert editors, Master Rogers and Michael Bacon, discover and report so many cases which are either not reported elsewhere or not reported for a very long time. I know that they have been sorely missed by many of our members since their publication faltered late in 2008. We are delighted that Class Legal have committed to getting the publication back on track, and will be offering an improved service."
                  Wendy Popplewell, former Chair of the Association of Costs Lawyers

                  "The provision of this important information on a regular basis is an essential and invaluable asset to ANYONE involved in Costs Law." 
                  Alan Gardner, A & J Costs Services, Sidcup, Kent

                  "Costs Law Reports online service is so easily accessible – user-friendly, and absolutely idiot-proof! "
