Legal Information: Citing & Writing

 

The Canadian style guide for legal citation is the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, also known as McGill style. The latest edition is the 2014 8th edition.

 

Legal citation

The APA guide suggests you use the legal style manual of your country to cite its respective legal source. In Canada, this is the McGill style guide, also know as the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation.

Please confirm with your instructor on his or her citation style preferences, as the use of APA and McGill styles will be instructor-specific in the Criminology (and other) departments.
