Legal Referencing for Law Units

Correct referencing is required while you are researching law and completing law assignments. 

Deakin University, School of Law requires that you comply with the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (4th edition, 2018) when citing references. This legal referencing guide is available in the library and online.


The 4th edition of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation was published in November 2018.  Direct purchases can be made through the MULR website. Copies are available at the DUSA Bookshop.

The publisher has released the attached PDF document which outlines the significant changes between the 3rd edition and the 4th edition.
