LAWC publishes OSCOLA Arabic
2015-01-08

College of Law (LAWC) and the International Review of Law (IRL) recently collaborated with Oxford University Faculty of Law to publish an Arabic version of the Oxford Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA).

 

The aim is to establish a manual that reflects the normal standards already in practice across the Arabic speaking world but that have never been formally recorded or unified and to make these standards a model for legal referencing in the region.  The outcome will be a complete set of standards that comply with both Oxford referencing and reflect practice of law scholars in the Middle East.  It will be published both by the IRL and on Oxford Law’s website.

 

LAWC Dean Dr Mohamed Al-Khulaifi said: “This effort will bring together law schools across the region through a unified legal citations system that can be accessed free of charge and will be of use to every scholar wishing to cite Arabic references.  This pioneering publication will ensure consistency in referencing standards that will raise the quality of legal academia across the region.”

 

OSCOLA co-editor and developer of its bibliographic software Miss Sandra Meredith said:   OSCOLA Arabic would be the first guide established in Arabic and will be an added asset to the Arabic educational environment as an instrument to guarantee the production of high-quality research. OSCOLA Arabic will set the standards and will assist scholars, students and authors around the MENA region”.

 

IRL Editor-in-Chief and LAWC professor Dr Jon Truby said: “This collaboration will be a major achievement for the College and will contribute significantly to institutional efforts to achieve research excellence.  It adds to a number of milestones accomplished by the College such as establishing the IRL and launching the Arabic Moot Court.  We are proud to make another important contribution to Qatar and the wider region with these unified standards for case and legislation citation”.
