Notes
  • When citing Australian law resources, use the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (Melbourne: Melbourne University Law Review Association in collaboration with Melbourne Journal of International Law, 2010). The Oxford Style Manual only refers to British and European Union law. For the full explanation of stylistic points and aspects of Legal and Government citations see section 13.2 of R.M. Ritter (ed.), Oxford Style Manual (3rd edn., Oxford: OUP, 2003)
  • Most Acts and Ordinances have a short formal title that can be used in citations
  • No comma precedes the year in the formal citation
  • It is recommended that all elements of the formal titles be shown in italics, including the date
  • For Pinpoint references – identify the particular section, paragraph, part, schedule, etc. (See Australian Guide to Legal Citation rule 3.1.4 for the appropriate abbreviations for pinpoint references to Acts.)
