Mae'r dudalen hon hefyd ar gael yn Gymraeg

Case notes

  • Cite case notes as though they were journal articles.
  • When there is no title use the name of the case in italics instead, and add (note) at the end of the citation.
  • Here is an example of a case note:
  • Andrew Ashworth, 'R (Singh) v Chief constable of the West Midlands Police' [2006] Crim LR 441 (note).

Footnote

Example: 

Andrew Ashworth, 'R (Singh) v Chief constable of the West Midlands Police' [2006] Crim LR 441 (note).

Blbliography

The only differences are that the author is now listed surname first followed by their initials, page numbers are not included and there is no full stop at the end of the reference. Omit the word note. 

Example:

Andrew Ashworth, 'R (Singh) v Chief constable of the West Midlands Police' [2006] Crim LR 441
