Q. How do we format in-text citiation when citing legal cases?


Citing legal cases in APA is fairly straight-forward. 

In-text citations are cited the following ways:

U.S. Airways v. Barnett (2002)

(U.S. Airways v. Barnett, 2002)

References page--Legal citation:

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973). Retrieved from LexisNexis database.

Paraphrase: (Roe v. Wade, 1973). Quotation: (Roe v. Wade, 1973, para. 3).

See the APA Help guide or the Paralegal guide for more help with legal citation.
