CILSA house style

In the interests of editorial consistency, the editors work within the parameters of an official style sheet. Generally, the standard rules of British English in regard to spelling and hyphenation are observed, but terms unique to the South African context have been standardised for CILSA. CILSA house style is based on the Oxford University Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) ( and should be consulted specifically for citing footnotes.
