How to Cite a Judge's First Name & Law in Footnotes


The footnotes of a paper are another way to cite information as you go along. Footnotes are slightly more detailed than regular in-text citations and appear in a separate section at the bottom of the page as opposed to within the text itself. If you want to cite the name of a judge and a particular law in the footnotes, you have to follow the proper format to be as concise and accurate as possible.

  • Type the full title of your judge in your footnotes. For example, if your judge is from the District Court, type "District Court Judge" (without quotes) into the footnote.

  • Type the full first and last name of your judge in your footnotes, immediately following the information contained in "Step 1."

  • Type a space and type the name of the law in question in italics. Type a space and type the year of the law in parenthesis. End your footnote with a period. Your final footnote should resemble this:

    Judge's Name Italicized Law Title (Year).
