Hi Diana?
I am Nolan and I am a writer at The Doctrine of Precedent stipulates that a court shall apply the rulings of previous cases in situations where the facts are the same. More specifically, a court is bound to do so if the previous case was tried in a higher court, in the same hierarchy (ie, District Court of NSW must follow rulings of the Supreme Court of NSW). Because of the Doctrine of Precedent, judges decisions thus become law which future judges must follow. That is what is referred to as judge-made law, or common law (as a source of law). If you need further assistance just respond and I will be waiting to assist you. Also, if you need me to do the work for you just place an order with us through the admin and select me (Nolan) as your preferred writer. Thank you in advance.
Kind regards,
