    Doctrine of precedent carries weight because of the hierarchal system. •the decisions of superior courts hold greater weight than those of inferior courts •the inferior courts are therefore bound by the decisions of higher courts in the hierarchy •precedent would cease to operate if no hierarchy existed and all courts were considered of equal status.
