Summary This book deals with a simple problem that affects all lawyers, whether practising or in training. Anyone making any written statement about the law for other lawyers needs to know how to cite correctly every case, statute, statutory instrument and learned book or article referred to. The legal profession has evolved a customary abbreviated way of writing citations, but in the past it has been very difficult to find out what the customs are. This book claims to show how to write the citation. It features a dictionary of law reports and legal periodicals, giving their preferred abbreviations. There are also recommendations for typography and punctuation of citations with many alternatives given from which a personal style can be devised.Derek French is the author of "Applications to Wind Up Companies" and co-author of "Mayson, French and Ryan on Company Law."
