Use of Footnotes
JJL prefers footnotes (to end notes) because of the following reasons:
▪ To identify the source of quotations or paraphrases;
▪ To acknowledge indebtedness for words, phrases or ideas borrowed;
▪ To explain where additional evidence or commentary may be found;
▪ To provide additional material or discussion that is relevant but which would disrupt the flow of the text if it were included in the main text itself, and
▪ To refer the reader to other parts of the paper
▪ To enable the reader to read the reference without having to turn to the end of the text which would otherwise tend to disrupt the flow of the text and hamper smooth reading.

Citation Format
The JJL will refer to a set pattern of citation (i.e., ILI Rules of Footnoting or Bluebook 20th ed.,). The citation style in the articles and case notes and case comments submitted for publication in JJL shall be in conformity with the abovementioned rules of footnoting.
