Referencing in legal writing
To reference sources used in academic writing it is common to use a particular citation style, such as Oxford, Harvard, or APA. Legal writing in English is often done using footnotes, and the Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) is widely used.
At the Faculty of Law there is no set citation style, but it is important that your citations and references are clear, consistent, and that there is enough information about the literature and sources so they can be found.
