 Caselaw is a primary source of law. Judge made law. Precedents. The doctrine of stare decisis. When arguing a point of law, it is always helpful to use primary sources of law where it has been done before. Caselaw is just that. A precedent where someone has already argued the point and it has been decided. The use of caselaw becomes obvious once you start. I can't think of a time where I haven't referred to a case. In each and every case I try, I always find myself referring to some authority. Remember, the answer you'll always have to give is "Why?". You argue the law is A and the prosecutor says it's B, have some caselaw supporting that the state of the law is A.
