Australian Guide to Legal Citation

The Australian Guide to Legal Citation provides Australia with a uniform system of legal citation. The AGLC is published by the Melbourne University Law Review Association. The first edition of the AGLC was published in 1998, and a second edition was published in 2002. The AGLC has been adopted by a number of Australia’s leading law journals.

The AGLC outlines established citation practices and indicates preferred approaches where no particular approach has been widely adopted. It is designed for academics, legal practitioners, law students and the judiciary, and is a valuable tool for legal writing and research. The AGLC is laid out in a manner that is easy to read and includes a detailed index and helpful examples. As well as providing a set of citation principles for Australian material, the AGLC includes suggestions for citing material from Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. A wide range of sources were consulted in developing the AGLC.
