You use a pinpoint. If your case citation ends with the court in brackets, put the page or paragraph pinpoint after the closing bracket. For example:

Beattie v E & F Beattie Ltd [1938] Ch 708 (Ch) 720.

If your case citation doesn’t include the court at the end, and you are pinpointing to a page number, insert a comma to prevent the page numbers running together. Separate multiple pinpoints with a comma too. For example:

Beattie v E & F Beattie Ltd [1938] Ch 708 (Ch) 720, 723.

If your judgment has numbered paragraphs, as it will have if it is a neutral citation, pinpoint to a specific paragraph by placing the paragraph number in square brackets. For example:

Callery v Gray [2001] EWCA Civ 1117 [12].

You can also pinpoint to a range of pages or paragraph numbers, using a dash. For example:

Beattie v E & F Beattie Ltd [1938] Ch 708 (Ch) 720-721.

Callery v Gray [2001] EWCA Civ 1117 [12]-[17].
