Referencing and the
Australian Guide to Legal Citation
Referencing is an essential academic skill. In law referencing serves two purposes. Referencing supports your arguments by giving appropriate legal authority (judicial decision or legislative provision). Referencing also gives credit to the work of others that you have relied on in preparing your work.
Any work you submit for assessment must be referenced in accordance with UNE standards. In this regard you are reminded that the School of Law has adopted the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (3rd ed), Melbourne University Law Review Association Inc., Melbourne, 2010, as the standard for law essays. You must refer to this text and reference in accordance with it. You may either buy it or access via the web site for the Melbourne University Law Review.
