Introduction

When writing in an academic context you are required to acknowledge the material which you have used in your assignments by citing or referencing the original source. Referencing your work:
  • helps you to avoid unintentional plagiarism
  • strengthens your academic argument
  • enables the reader to locate the sources to which you have referred.

The Australian Guide to Legal Citation is the standard referencing style guide used by the T C Beirne School of Law. A full copy of the guide can be found below:
