The basic order of a legal citation is year, volume, abbreviation and page number (a paragraph or section number may replace the page number).

The Abbreviations page of the Legal Citation (McGill Guide) Quick Reference guide provides links to a variety of sources to help with legal abbreviations. An example of a case citation can be found on the Finding a Case Citation page of the Legal Citation (McGill Guide) Quick Reference guide.
