Harvard Personal Statement - Rules of citation


JJM5
Hey there!

Does anybody know where I can find the rules of citation which should be observed in the Essay of the personal Statement? I am not quite sure how to the footnotes shall look like (integrated in the text or below the text).

Many thanks and Kind regards

Redbook citations work fine for Harvard as well as other American and European Universities.

US law schools all use the Bluebook. I haven't even heard of the Redbook. But I agree, you shouldn't be citing things anyway.

Hi! Harvard personal statement is composed of two parts. Whereas Part (B) is like a regular personal statement, they ask you to address a legal issue/problem in Part (A). I suggest you use citations for Part A.

It doesn't seem to matter for Harvard how you cite things in the legal essay. No need to plagiarize, obviously, but they seem to care more about substance than form in this particular case.
