The Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) is a style for legal citations. The AGLC is used by academics, legal practitioners, law students and the judiciary and is a valuable tool for legal writing and research.
The fourth edition of the AGLC was released in 2018.
To obtain a copy of AGLC4 you can:
Note: the view only PDF version does not include the Appendices setting out law report abbreviations and medium neutral identifiers. See Cases for more information.
The AGLC Referencing Style has two main features, in-text reference numbers with accompanying footnotes which appear within the text of your assignment and are used to acknowledge each source you use and the bibliography which appears at the end of your assignment and is a complete list of everything you have cited.
Your bibliography is a list of all the sources that you have referred to or used in your assignment, usually located at the end of the assignment.
Sources in the bibliography should be categorised under headings as per AGLC, Rule 1.13.
Note: There are no full-stops at the end of each source in the bibliography.
