OSCOLA is a referencing system specifically designed for legal materials. It has been devised by the University of Oxford. Now in its 4th edition, it is intended to facilitate the accurate citation of cases, legislation and other legal materials, along with books, journals and other literature.

This system is used by Anglia Law School in common with law schools and publishers in the UK and beyond. Guidance from the Head of Anglia Law School can be found on the Law subject guide.

Complete guidance is available in the University of Oxford OSCOLA guide.

A self-directed OSCOLA tutorial from Anglia Ruskin University Library is also available.
