Reference Management

Australian Guide to Legal Citation

The reference style used at Melbourne Law School is the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (AGLC) 4th edition. AGLC 4 is published by the Melbourne University Law Review (MULR) and the Melbourne Journal of International Law (MJIL).

The MULR website has an online ‘view only’ copy of AGLC 4.

You can purchase a print copy of the AGLC 4 from the MULR website.  Print copies of ALGC 4 are available for loan in the Law Library High Use area under the call number K114 AUST.
