This is a short guide to the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (4th ed)

Quotation marks

Single quotation marks should be used for short quotations incorporated into the text. For quotes longer than three lines, indent from the left margin using a smaller font size and omit quotation marks altogether. For further information, see AGLC4 rule1.5 at p 15.

Full stops

Full stops indicate the end of a sentence. All footnotes should also end with a full stop. They should not be used in abbreviations or after initials. For further information, see AGLC4 rule 1.6.1 at p 22.
