New Citation Format Now Available: McGill Guide
Thanks to a suggestion from Vicki Leung at the University of Windsor, an additional format has been added to the citation tool. Users can now instantly receive citations for HeinOnline documents according to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (also known as the McGill Guide).
About the McGill Guide
The McGill Guide was created in 1986 to establish a uniform bilingual standard for legal citation in Canada. It has been published by the McGill Law Journal and is now in its eighth edition. Most Canadian law journals, law schools and practitioners, as well as many courts, have adopted this standard.
It is intended to serve as a reference and a guide to citing legislation, jurisprudence, government documents, and secondary sources such as books and journals. Although designed specifically for Canadian legal materials, the Guide also includes short sections on foreign (e.g. U.S. and U.K.) and international law sources. The McGill Guide rules apply only to footnote citations, in-text citations, and bibliographies.
