AGLC referencing UniSkills: Introduction

AGLC referencing



AGLC 4 is a footnotes referencing style used in law. It is based on the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, 4th edition, produced by the Melbourne University Law Review Association in collaboration with the Melbourne Journal of International Law.


This guide is primarily for students completing assignments at Curtin University. If you are publishing (e.g. journal article, PhD), please consult the above publication as the examples provided here may differ from the requirements outlined in the official style guide.


An online version of the complete AGLC manual is available at:

Print copies are also available in the Library collection.


Note: Whenever you see instruction to ‘see rules …’ in this guide, it is referring to the rules within AGLC4 manual.
