References to American legal materials should be formatted according to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. If you're using the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (American Psychological Association, 2020), pages 356-368 in the manual provide information and examples that align with the Bluebook. If you don't have access to the APA Style manual, you could refer to the Introduction to Basic Legal Citation (Peter Martin) from the Legal Information Institute at the Cornell University Law School. Please also see How to Cite the U.S. Constitution in APA Style?.

Canadian legal citations follow the rules of the McGill Law Journal's Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, which is also referred to as the McGill Guide. For more information on the McGill Guide rules, please see Canadian Statutes, Cases, and Legislation.
