The Information Note contains legal summaries of the cases examined during the month in question which the Registry considers to be of particular interest. The summaries are drafted by Registry’s lawyers and are not binding on the Court. They are normally drafted in the language of the case concerned. The translation of the legal summaries into the other official language can be accessed directly through hyperlinks in the Note. These hyperlinks lead to the HUDOC database, which is regularly updated with new translations.
The cases summarised in the Information Notes are indexed by Convention Article, keyword, applicant name and respondent State. The Index also contains a list of cases which have been referred to or relinquished in favour of the Grand Chamber, and a list of cases from other European and international jurisdictions summarised in the Information Notes.
