OLCS 2.0

We are announcing today the release of the second edition of the Oman Legal Citation Standard (OLCS), which is a guide for citing primary Omani legal authorities in academic works and legal documents. OLCS aims to create a consistent standard for citing Omani legislation and other primary legal sources in a manner that makes it easy for the reader to identify the sources used and to predict the manner of their citation. 

OLCS is designed as a supplement to the Oxford Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) exclusively in regard to Omani primary legal sources. The users of OLCS should refer to OSCOLA for general formatting rules as well as all matters relating to international law sources and secondary sources.

The first edition of OLCS was released in 2016, and it has been revised to reflect the new approaches followed by Decree in structuring the titles of royal decrees and laws and to include more current examples of cited laws.
