APA Style

California State University Stanislaus provides examples of how to cite legal resources following APA style. 

Bluebook Style

Most legal citations follow the The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Cornell University's Legal Information Institute provides many citation examples that you may wish to review to distinguish among citations to cases, codes and regulations. A copy of The Bluebook is also available at the reference desk at Cheng Library.
