Old Bailey opens its unseen files

What a rich resource for law students. Indeed, for anyone interested in the law and history of England:

The long arm of the law now stretches across time: from tomorrow [April 28], the transcripts of every trial heard at the Old Bailey from 1674 to 1913 can be read online, free of charge. The records of more than 210,000 criminal trials held from shortly after the Great Fire of London until just before the Great War, and the biographical details of around 3,000 men and women executed at Tyburn, are to be posted on the Old Bailey Proceedings website (oldbaileyonline.org).
