How to cite law reports
Within the text of an assignment you would simply refer to the names of the two parties. In the full reference you should include the case name, date, volume number and abbreviation of the set of reports where it can be located, eg
Gill & Anor v El Vino Co.Ltd [ 1993 ] 1 All ER 398
There is a legal convention to use square brackets where the is also a volume number quoted. In this example the case is found in volume 1 of the All England Law Reports. This rule is not always adhered to. If you are quoting a number of cases it may be advisable to include them as a separate list.
If no volume number is included to identify a particular law report round brackets may be used.
