This guide will assist you in understanding how to reference for your assignment. It contains examples to help you format your footnotes and bibliography.
The Australian Guide to Legal Citation 4th edition (AGLC 4) is a numbered style, meaning in-text citations are represented by a superscript number 1, 3, 8 and the details of the citation are included in a footnote in the body of your assignment. Where a bibliography is required, it should list all the citations used and other sources that were relied upon, organised alphabetically in sections, and placed at the end of your assignment.
