SUMMARY ======= The Oscola package works (only!) with Biblatex (v 2.0 or later) and Biber (v 1.0 or later). It aims to implement, almost completely, the OSCOLA style of legal citation, according to the 4th edition. For further information about coverage see the documentation. FILES AND LICENCE ================= The package consists of three principal files (oscola.bbx, oscola.cbx and english-oscola.lbx) which should be placed, documentation (oscola.pdf), and a very short index style file (oscola.ist). Those files are copyright (c) Paul Stanley 2012-13.
