Law uses the OSCOLA referencing standard. It is unlikely you will be expected to use OSCOLA for your references, however it is worth having an awareness of it as most legal sources will use this style. See the above guidance on how to cite law resources in Harvard Solent.
Should you need to use or understand OSCOLA for any reason then please seek out the Law LibGuide for advice and guidance.
Psychology has a different referencing standard - APA (American Psychological Association), so if studying Criminology & Psychology or Criminal Investigations & Psychology, you may find an expectation that you should use this referencing style for those modules led by the Psychology team.
For help and guidance on this referencing standard visit the Psychology LibGuide
