Legal Citation Library Guide

Janelle Sztuhar worked with Hayli Millar to create a new LibGuide for Legal Citation Style.

The APA Style Guide 7th ed. states “existing legal references are usually already written in legal style and require few if any changes for an APA Style reference list entry” (p. 355). If you are using APA style for your other citations (books, journal articles, and other secondary sources) – you will likely need to follow APA for in-text citations and the reference list entries will follow the format from Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation 9th edition (aka The McGill Guide) for legal citations (e.g. laws and cases). Always check with your instructor on what style they want you to follow or if they have any of their own rules for the assignment.
