Use a connector plugin to enable one-click downloads from major research archives (e.g. JSTOR, HeinOnline, Cornell LII, CourtListener, and many others).
The Juris-M connector plugin for Google Chrome, in the Google Web Store.
The Juris-M connector plugin for recent versions of Firefox.
The beta versions in the this section have undergone some testing, but have not yet been run extensively "in the wild," and may contain bugs. These versions are available during testing only: when the next full release comes out, you should replace any beta with the main version by reinstalling.
Installation for Standalone and the Firefox plugin works in the exactly the same way as the main release. To run the developer plugin for Chrome, you must download the code bundle, unpack it on your desktop, disable the main version in your Chrome browser, and follow these instructions to load the unpacked extension in "developer mode."
In the current Jurism beta release
(version 5.0.73m5), the source files for legal support
can be edited by the user, without need for rebuilding the client.
Documentation on editing jurisdiction IDs and court abbreviations
is available in the project’s Legal Resource Registry.
Documentation on editing
style-modules is forthcoming, but in the meantime the Juris-M Style Editor contains a pretty-good tutorial on module authoring.
The plugins below are compatible with Zotero 5.0 unless noted otherwise.
The Abbreviation Filter supports style-specific abbreviation lists, and is bundled with the Juris-M client. The Filter provides an interface for adding, editing and managing abbreviation lists, accessible under anbutton that appears in the word processor citation popup, and in the pane.
The Abbreviation Filter is not compatible with Zotero 5.0.
For writing platforms not directly supported by a word processor plugin (Scrivener is a common case), Juris-M can be used with the RTF/ODF Scan plugin. The plugin enables scannable citation placeholders that can be pasted into any document text. The placeholders can be converted to “live” Zotero/Juris-M citations when the document is exported in the ODF format used by LibreOffice.
Law review editors in the United States generally require the use of a conventional set of “signals” to indicate the manner of support that individual citations lend to the author”s argument (to wit: e.g., accord, see, see also, cf., contra, but see, but cf., and see generally).
This plugin enables convenient shortcut entry of such signals.
The processor code itself is primarily of interest to site maintainers and software developers.
Versions of the citation processor higher than 1.1.218 adopt stricter rules for the "suppress author" option, and manuscripts that rely on the former behavior may not process correctly. Installing this plugin will force Zotero to use the older processor version. Permanent reliance on the older processor for new projects is not recommended, as it will not reflect bugfixes and enhancements available in the current release.
Zotero, and therefore Jurism, is in the process of migrating to a new architecture. After the migration, this plugin will cease to function. If your work requires workarounds that depend the plugin, you should join the Juris-M support lists and initiate a discussion of your referencing requirements, so they can be properly supported in Jurism.
The JM styles bundled with Juris-M provide modular support for legal referencing. Standard styles from the CSL Style Repository can be adapted for modular legal style support. If you require legal support in a standard CSL style, post a request to the Juris-M mailing lists.
JM Chicago Full Note with Indigo legal referencing is the recommended citation style for English-language theses in the Nagoya University Graduate School of Law, the institutional home of Juris-M.
JM Indigo [a] is based on the freely available eponymous guide edited by Sprigman et al. and published by Public.Resource.Org. The Indigo Book provides a detailed description of the citation rules for US legal writing.
If JM Indigo does not render a cite in the form you expect, post a note to the Juris-M mailing lists and we will fix it.
Identical to the main JM Indigo style, but with roman-style type instead of italic for first-reference case names.
The MLZ implementation of the Oxford Standard for the Citation of Legal Resources.
Style suitable for submissions to Diritto Pubblico Comparato ed Europeo, an Italian publisher specializing in comparative and European public law.
A European style modeled on CSL Turabian. This style renders items in the locale of the Language field: “nl” for Dutch, “fr” for French, “de” for German, “es” for Spanish, and either “en” or an empty Language field for English.
This style is the same as JM Chicago Full Note, but with terms localized to the following languages: Dutch nl, English en, French fr, German de, Russian ru, Spanish es, Ukrainian uk. The default locale for this style is English.
This is a Harvard variant, with support for legal referencing.
Taylor & Francis has several styles in their stable. This one is a variant of Chicago Author-Date.
