  25. Styles in Action • You can assign a style for • Headings and Subheadings • For you: TOC – A Table of Contents is created by automatically taking everything named as Heading 1, 2, and 3 and putting it in order.

  26. Setting Up the TOC Format


  28. Things you don’t want in your Table of Contents…. • If a Heading style was centered, you should change the corresponding TOC style to left • If a Heading style included outline numbering, the corresponding TOC style should remove the numbering.

  35. Insert | Reference | Index & Tables

  36. Table of Authorities • HOW? A TOA draws from all of the “marked” citations in a document. A “marked” citation will be tagged with special information (which can be modified). • A tag for a citation may look something like this: U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550, 551 (1st Cir. 1973) { TA \l “U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550” \s “472 F2d. at” \c9 }

  37. Huhh???? • What does this mean?U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550, 551 (1st Cir. 1973) { TA \l “U.S. v. DiPrima, 472 F.2d 550” \s “472 F2d. at” \c9 } • The full or long citation follows the code “ \l ” • Purpose: Identifies how the citation should look in the TOA • The short citation follows the code “ \s ” • Purpose: Helps Word Mark All remaining citations for the case. • The last code – “ \c ” is the category number. • Purpose: Organizes your Table of Authorities into Categories.

  38. Setting Up Categories • Most trial and appellate briefs are likely to have at least two different categories of authorities • Here are some sample categories you could set up before you begin to mark your citations: • Supreme Court of the United States • Other Federal Authority • State Court Decisions • Statutory Provisions • United States Constitution

  39. Setting Up Categories • Insert>Reference> Index and Tables> Mark Citation> Category, OR Alt+Shift+I>Category • The first seven categories are pre-defined. Scroll down until you find an unused option (8, 9, 10, etc.) Replace the # with your own custom category.

  40. Marking Citations • For Most Citations • Highlight the first citation • Insert>Reference>Index and Tables>Mark Citation OR Alt+Shift+I • Correct your long cite to remove pinpoint cite • Correct short citations, so that you can "mark all“ – e.g., “994 F.2d at” • Select Mark All

  41. Finding the Next Citation • Select “Next Citation” and Repeat the Process: • Select Next Citation • Highlight the entry • Alt+Shift+I • Correct your long cite to remove pinpoint cite • Correct short citations, so that you can "mark all“ – e.g., “994 F.2d at” • Select Mark All

  42. Marking Citations • Second Occurrence of same long citation: • Best practice for briefs is to repeat a long citation if a short citation would be confusing to the reader – e.g., new page, new subheading, etc. • Treat as a new citation (with a couple twists) • Select Next Citation • Highlight the entry • Alt+Shift+I • BUT – instead of correcting the long and short citation, simply pick the case from the Short Citation List. • AND – Select Mark (NOT Mark All)

  43. Marking Citations • Second Occurrence of same long citation example

  44. Marking Citations • Deadling with "Id.___” • Obviously Id. can refer to any case AND you won't find it using "next citation" • Select Edit>Find OR Ctrl-Fto search for cases of "Id." • Simply select from the short citation drop down box to find the related case. • Select Mark

  45. TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE • What is the short-cut for marking citations? • What is the purpose of the Short Citation function in Word? And how do I create one?
