OSCOLA Ireland Citation Style for Law

The School of Law uses the OSCOLA Ireland citation style.

The book: How to think write and cite: key skills for Irish Lawyers is a good guide to use.

OSCOLA Ireland
OSCOLA stands for Oxford University Standard for Citation Of Legal Authorities. The UCD School of Law uses OSCOLA Ireland - an adapted variation of OSCOLA.
OSCOLA Ireland Guides
The Legalcitation site is edited by a group of Irish academics, in consultation with both the OSCOLA Ireland Editorial Advisory Board, and the OSCOLA Editorial Advisory Board - it provides guides and FAQ's on OSCOLA Ireland. Be sure to consult these.
