As the end of term approaches and your final research papers and projects are due, it is important to ensure you have properly cited your work. While the Law Library can offer reference assistance and resources such as this citation guide, you will also need to rely on the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (McGill Guide). If you do not have your own copy, it is available online via WestlawNext Canada. To access it, follow these steps:
- Go to WestlawNext Canada (you can find the database on the Law Library’s main page under Quick Links, or search for it through the catalogue)
- Login using your credentials. If you have lost them, or are an Osgoode student and have not yet registered for Westlaw, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Once you’re logged in, you can find the McGill Guide toward the bottom of the main page, under Finding Tools
- Search through the guide for details on how to properly cite different primary or secondary resources, and other materials
If you experience any issues in accessing the McGill Guide, or require additional support with legal citation, contact the reference desk at email@example.com between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
