LegalCitation.ie contains a comprehensive citation system for Irish lawyers and law students, based on the OSCOLA (Oxford Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities) standard.

Called OSCOLA Ireland, OSCOLA has been adapted and amended in a manner which makes it relevant and useful in an Irish context, using, in the main, Irish examples.

Throughout Irish law schools, publishing houses and professional organisations, there is no one system of citation, which makes it challenging for writers to adapt to different styles depending on their audience. We hope that this website, and OSCOLA Ireland will go a small way to developing a standard system of citation across the country.

It has been developed by four academics at the University of Limerick, Dublin Institute of Technology and the National University of Ireland Galway, with the support and approval of other Law Schools. We are very grateful to OSCOLA and its Board for their assistance in developing OSCOLA Ireland, and for their permission to do so.
