A frequently litigated statute such as a licensing Act will give rise to many reported cases dealing with the meaning of its terms and sometimes a publisher will publish an annotated version of the statute. That is, it will publish the text of the statute along with a summary of the relevant cases, section by section. These precedents, although created by the judges, are not part of the common law. They are decided in relation to statute law and they are properly regarded as being ancillary to statute law. For all of this the common law learning associated with the doctrine of precedent (including the concepts of ratio decidendi and obiter dictum ) apply to these cases and govern the use to be made of them in subsequent cases.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
