Our series of blog posts on OSCOLA aim to help you navigate through the complex and sometimes confusing rules of this referencing style. This time we concentrated on EU cases organising them in tables at the end of your work.
TIP! If you divide your table of cases by jurisdiction:
- list European Court of Justice (ECJ), General Court (GC) – previously known as Court of First Instance (CFI) – and Commission decisions separately,
- in chronological or numerical order,
- cite the cases as in footnotes, with the case number first, but omitting the
EU cases have been given the prefix C– (for ECJ cases) or T– (for GC cases).
C-280/92 Spain v the Commission  ECR I-4103
C–176/03 Commission v Council  ECR I–7879
C-39/94 SFEI v La Poste  ECR I-3547
T–344/99 Arne Mathisen AS v Council  ECR II–2905
T-396/08 Freistaat Sachsen und Land Sachsen-Anhalt v Commission  ECR II-141,
T-29/05 Deltafina v Commission  ECR II-4077
Tip! If not listed separately in your table of cases, EU cases should be arranged alphabetically by first party name, followed by the case number in brackets.
Cite the ‘Case T-344/99 Arne Mathisen AS v Council  ECR II-2905’ in the table of cases under letter ‘A’:
- Arne Mathisen AS v Council (T-344/99)  ECR II-2905
