A case note is similar to a journal article, but it analyses a single case. You cite it the same way as you cite a journal article. If the case note you want to cite doesn’t have a title, use the name of the case in italics instead and add (note) at the end of the citation. For example:
29 Andrew Ashworth, ‘R v (Singh) v Chief Constable of the West Midlands Police’  Crim LR 441 (note).
If you include the case name within your text, there’s no need to include it in the case note citation. The example above would become:
29 Andrew Ashworth  Crim LR 441 (note).
See the OSCOLA referencing page for more guidance.
