Chapter 18. Using WordPerfect’s Legal Tools > Creating a Table of Authorities

Creating a Table of Authorities

A table of authorities is like a table of contents for a legal document. It lists the authorities—which are the legal references to other cases, statutes, rules, citations, regulations, amendments, and so on—that appear in a legal brief. Keep in mind that you can use the Table of Authorities feature to create a bibliography for any document that requires identification of sources.

The steps to create a table of authorities are almost identical to the steps to create a table of contents. You mark the entry, define the table, and generate it. Authorities are grouped into categories, so you end up marking entries for a certain category, rather than a certain level. A table of authorities is divided into sections; each section contains one category.
