jurabib – Extended BibTeX citation support for the humanities and legal texts
This package enables automated citation with BibTeX for legal
studies and the humanities. In addition, the package provides
commands for specifying editors in a commentary in a convenient
way. Simplified formatting of the citation as well as the
bibliography entry is also provided. It is possible to display
the (short) title of a work only if an authors is cited with
multiple works. Giving a full citation in the text, conforming
to the bibliography entry, is supported. Several options are
provided which might be of special interest for those outside
legal studies—for instance, displaying multiple full
citations. In addition, the format of last names and first names
of authors may be changed easily. Cross references to other
footnotes are possible. Language dependent handling of
bibliography entries is possible by the special language field.
