a little about footnotes in legal writing:

legal scholarly writing is thick with footnotes -- few textual sentences stand without them

three functions of footnotes 
1. to document the text -- providing both authority and bibliography
2. to attribute borrowed ideas to their sources -- avoiding plagiarism, and 
3. to embellish the main text -- permitting the author to engage in creative digressions and to offer personal, even humorous asides to the reader

good luck. 
Prof. J.
