Law students at ECU are required to use the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) 3rd edition referencing style.
Legal materials covered by the AGLC
Many legal materials are covered by the AGLC including cases, legislation, journal articles, books, parliamentary debates (Hansard), legal encyclopaedias, loose leaf services, working papers, treaties, United Nations material and more. Hard copy and online sources are covered.
A guide to using AGLC
The University of Queensland Library is a great resource for using the AGLC referencing style.
They have created a legal reference style using the Modify Reference Types function in EndNote.
Legal output styles
The University of Queensland has created two output styles for legal referencing using EndNote that conform with the requirements of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (3rd edition):
- AGLC3 Footnotes Only - for short documents such as journal articles; and
- AGLC3 Footnotes and Bibliography - for longer works that require a bibliography such as a thesis or book.
The Endnote AGLC3 style for footnotes and bibliography has been added to the standard operating environment at the University. To access these styles, visit the EndNote Styles web page on the University of Queensland Library website.
We recommend that you use the 'Using the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (3rd edition) with EndNote X4 Guide' published by University of Queensland.
Downloading output styles
For information about how to download these legal output styles into EndNote, see Section 1.3 of the guide.
Create a new reference style
We recommend that you create a new style (type) called ‘Legal’ in EndNote. Follow the instructions in Section 2.4 of the AGLC3 guide.
