Please leave a space between paragraphs, but DO NOT put a tab at the start of the next paragraph – the publishers will do this.
Words and expressions in Latin, or in a foreign or African language should be italicised: culpa, bona fides, Grundnorm, ikhazi.

Where consecutive pages are referred to in references to cases, Acts, textbooks and journals, the page numbers should be referenced FULLY: 165-169, NOT 165-9 or 165-69.
