Video on How to Cite Cases Under the New Illinois Supreme Court Rules

In July 2011 the Illinois Supreme Court amended Illinois Supreme Court Rule 6 to require that, in briefs filed in Illinois appellate courts, Illinois cases filed on or after July 1, 2011 must be cited using a new public domain citation system explained in amended Rule 6.

Last week in my Communication and Legal Reasoning class we worked through some exercises in how to cite case law, including an exercise on case citation under Illinois’ new rule.

Here’s a link to an informative video prepared by John Marshall Law School in Chicago about how to cite post-2011 cases under the amended Rule.

(Hat tip to the Legal Writing Prof Blog for posting about the video).
