In The Case Files we look back at notable court cases over the last 150 years - and discover how Brodies lawyers through the ages have played their part in key legal moments over that time.

In each episode, we talk to Brodies' modern-day legal experts to discover how their predecessors helped shape the way the law is applied today.

In this first episode, host David Lee is joined by Tony Jones KC, and solicitor advocate Jamie Reekie for an in depth look at a House of Lords case from the 19th century (A&J Inglis v John Buttery & Co (1878) 3 App Cas 552), a case that still influences the principles of contract and shipping law to this day, including those in English law.
