The citation of legal documents and law cases may be complicated. In general, do not underline or enclose in quotation marks laws, acts, and similar documents in either the text or the list of works cited.

In citing a case, include, in addition to the names of the first plaintiff and the first defendant, the volume, name (not underlined), and page (in that order) of the law report cited; the name of the court that decided the case; and the year in which it was decided.
