Citing legal authorities

Page history last edited by Angela Wright 2 years, 9 months ago


The Oxford Standard for Citation Of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) is designed to facilitate accurate citation of authorities, legislation, and other legal materials. It was produced by the Oxford Law Faculty in consultation with leading academic law publishers and serves as the style guide for the Oxford University Commonwealth Law Journal, as well as for theses written in the Law Faculty. It is the closest that the UK has to what in the US is known as The Bluebook.



The Introduction to Basic Legal Citation by Peter W. Martin is an online work which reflects guidance given in the ALWD Citation Manual and The Bluebook: a uniform system of citation.
