Year Books

Hist. Books of cases anonymously and fairly regularly reported covering primarily the period from the reign of Edward I to the time of Henry VIII.

• The title “Year Books” derives from their being grouped under the regnal years of the sovereigns in whose reigns the reported cases were cited. The reports were probably originally prepared by law teachers and students and later by professional reporters or scribes. — Also written Year-Books; year-books; yearbooks.

— Also termed terms. Cf. ABBREVIATIO PLACITORUM.
