Cases are published in reporters. A case citation is generally made up of the following parts:
the names of the parties involved in the lawsuit
the volume number of the reporter containing the full text of the case
the abbreviated name of that case reporter
the page number on which the case begins the year the case was decided; and sometimes
the name of the court deciding the case.
Below is an example of a case citation:
Hebb v. Severson, 201 P.2d 156 (Wash. 1948).
In this example, Hebb and Severson are the parties in the case. The case can be found in volume 201 of the Pacific Reporter, Second Series beginning on page 156. The case was decided by the Washington State Supreme Court in 1948.
Works from the web can typically be changed or removed at any time, so while it's optional, the date which you accessed material is often important. This is especially true when there is no date specifying when an item was produced. This date will be added to the end of the entry, e.g. Accessed 11 April 2018.
The format of dates is: Day Month (shortened) Year. E.g. 11 Sept. 2017.
Whether to give the year alone or include a month and day depends on your source: write the full date as you find it there.
If no date is listed, omit it unless you can find that information available in a reliable source.
Capitalize the first letter of every important word in the title. You do not need to capitalize words such as: in, of, or an.
If there is a colon (:) in the title, include what comes after the colon (also known as the subtitle).
