As LLM students are busy with their dissertations, we think that a selection of OSCOLA (Oxford University Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities ) examples would be beneficial to check that everything is in order with your in-text citations or bibliographies.
The School of Law at the University of Aberdeen expects students to use OSCOLA citation style for their essays and dissertations. Please follow the links to get access to the 4th edition of the OSCOLA guide (2012) and the OSCOLA Citing International Law guide (2006).
The list below also provides valuable information through practical OSCOLA examples:
- Abbreviations commonly used in case names
- Citing journal articles: The dilemma of round and square brackets
- Citing newspaper articles
- Citing hard copy journal articles
- Subsequent citation of a case
- Table of cases (EU cases)
- Tables and lists
- Citing cases in footnotes
- Contributions to edited books
Good luck with your assignments.
