The most important thing to do while citing a previous case is searching by the date and by the title of the case. If you are writing an academic paper, periodical research comes handy. Periodicals should be reviewed to find if there has been a fresh legislation or an interesting case that could be the subject of a case.

You can get in-depth analysis of difficult cases through periodical articles. A footnote in a text can help you reference previous cases in a periodical article. Legal cases are foot-noted with citations to primary or secondary sources. The most usual way to find periodical tables is to look in a periodical index. You may find some information on the intranet sites of the legal firm, especially if you work for a legal firm.
