Criminal Law Week uses the standard Boolean operators AND, OR, NEAR and NOT. These operators make it possible to search not only for items which contain a specific keyword or exact phrase, but also:
- for items which contain all of a specified combination of keyword(s)/ exact phrase(s) (AND).
- for items which contain at least one of a number of different keywords/ phrases (OR);
- to limit a search to keywords/ phrases which appear within 50 words of each other (NEAR);
- to exclude specific keywords/ phrases from a search (NOT);
- to carry out complex searches using combinations of a number of Boolean operators.
A phrase consisting of a number of words in a specified order must be surrounded by double quotes, e.g. "bad character".
The site cannot search on words that are less than 3 characters, such as "to", "of" and "for". Should you wish to search for Abuse of Process, be sure to surround your search query with double quotes ("Abuse of Process").
To search for items which contain a number of keywords/ phrases, separate search terms with a space, e.g. “false impression” implied assertion or with the word AND, e.g. “false impression” AND implied AND assertion.
To search for items which contain at least one of a number of keywords/ phrases, separate search terms with the word OR, e.g. “bad character” OR “hearsay evidence” OR retrial.
To search for items which contain keywords/ phrases within 50 words of each other, separate search terms with the word NEAR, e.g. “false impression” NEAR assertion.
To search for items which contain one keyword/ phrase but which do not contain another keyword/ phrase, separate search terms with the word NOT, e.g. to search for items which contain the phrase “bad character”, but do not contain the keyword defendant, type “bad character” NOT defendant.
The use of brackets with Boolean operators permits more complex searching.
Example 1: to search for items containing either:
robbery AND “offensive weapon”
robbery AND firearm,
or all three search terms, type:
robbery AND (“offensive weapon” OR firearm)
Example 2: to search for items which either contain both:
“abuse of process” AND “agent provocateur”
or which contain all three search terms, type:
entrapment OR (“abuse of process” AND “agent
This site cannot search on keywords that are less than 3 characters, such as "to", "of" and "for", symbols or punctuation. Should you wish to search for a phrase containing a word of less than 3 characters, the phrase should be surrounded with double quotes, e.g. "abuse of process".
