Legal Citation - OSCOLA Style Online Guide

Using a standardized and consistent legal citation style is essential for legal researchers, practitioners, and other readers to accurately locate and verify the cases, legislation, and secondary sources cited in your works. It also ensures proper credit is given to the original sources and helps prevent plagiarism.

This online guide provides comprehensive information on how to properly cite a variety of legal materials based on the Oxford University Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA). However, it is important to note that citation styles may vary depending on the requirements of your course instructor or publisher. Therefore, it is recommended to confirm with your instructor whether you should use the citation rules described in this guide or a different citation style.
