Which Citation Style Should I Use?

Use the citation style your Professor recommends. 

Each major citation style (MLA, APA, Chicago) will include common legal resources.  See the Middlebury Citation & Style Guide for help.

Use the legal-specific citation guides (Bluebook, etc.) to help you decipher legal citations you encounter or for examples of more specialized resources not adequately covered by the major citation styles.
