BUS 18 - Business Law

This guide is intended as a resource to help students in the Business Law course. It will cover online resources, APA citation, and legal citation to help students complete their final project.

Legal Citations

When reading a law review or court ruling, there are going to be a lot of references to different statutes, laws, and legal precedent. When lawyers reference these things, they use a special kind of citation which we will call Legal Citations.
