Legal Commentary - Chicago style 17th edition

Hello, I am currently using the Chicago style 17th edition, and need to include a footnote from a legal commentary. I heard that there was Jurism "Legal Commentary" Item Type, but can't find it in the item types to select from. The closest thing to it is "Statute" but it doesn't give me the option to select the appropriate paragraph of the commentary I am referring to. How can I have access to the "Legal Commentary" Item Type, while using the Chicago style?

Many thanks :)
  • That type is just a special case of Book Section in Jurism, so go with Book Section I would say
  • I'd go with book section too, when you're using Chicago. As far as I can tell, only some Austrian and Swiss legal styles for Jurism implement that item type. Any other style would produce unpredictable results.
