For legal citation at Otago, use the New Zealand Law Style Guide (NZLSG).

Legal citation styles do not map easily into reference management sytems.
We recommend Endnote, if you are working on research on a large scale, and Zotero, if you need something simple and mobile.
Both options require some manipulation!
