Citations to legal information sources such as US Reports, the US Code, the Federal Register and Code of Federal Regulations are given in two formats. The first is the legal citation style used in The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, 19th ed. (Harvard Law Review Association, 2010). The second format conforms closely to the examples in Diane Garner’s The Complete Guide to Citing Government Information Resources: A Manual for Social Science & Business Research (3rd ed., rev. by Debora Cheney. Congressional Information Service, 2002). Where Garner's sample citations to legal information differed significantly from MLA style, a citation was constructed to conform to MLA standards for a source published in a non-government periodical, such as a popular magazine.
Below, are examples of the two citation formats mentioned above:
16 U.S.C. Sec. 668 (1988).
"Protection of Bald and Golden Eagles." Title 16 US Code, sec. 668, Government Printing Office,1988, pp. 839-846.
