The Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) is a guide to legal citation and it is the standard citing and referencing format used by The City Law School.
Citing what you have read to complete an assignment is not only important to avoid plagiarism, but it also makes your argument stronger.
Where do I start?
First, download the OSCOLA Handbook. The guide contains all the rules you need to know.
Then you can check the interactive tutorial that Library Services, in cooperation with LEaD, have put together. You can find it in our Citing & Referencing guide:
The tutorial will guide you through everything you need to know.
Need further help?
If after doing the tutorial you are still confused or you have questions to ask, come along to meet your subject librarian at the following times and locations:
Innovation Centre Library 1st floor, every Wednesday from 1-3pm
Gray’s Inn Place Library, every Thursday 11am-1pm.
Ask at the Library Service Desk if you get lost!
