Have you heard about the latest citation format addition to the Law Journal Library? Users can now access the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, otherwise known as the McGill Guide! We’d like to thank Vicki Leung from the University of Windsor for suggesting this idea. As you can see, this was exciting news for our Canadian friends!

How To Locate The McGill Guide Citation

Let’s begin by constructing a search in the Law Journal LibraryBrowse by Country and choose Canada from the list of countries. Using the search bar located above the Canadian journals, enter “trial scientific evidence”~20 and click the search button. This proximity search locates articles from these journals which have the words trial, scientific, and evidence within 20 words of each other.
