Abstract

The fourth edition of LEGAL REFERENCING is a comprehensive and clear guide to legal referencing and effective legal writing. These are essential skills for students and academics. This new edition is written to engage under-graduate students. It highlights the importance of accurate legal referencing. The in-depth treatment of this subject, and the provision of many "how to reference" examples, make this a critical reference text for every student to purchase. The author provides clear commentary explaining the "hows and whys" of good legal referencing and writing. There is a highly valued chapter of examples and exercises which show students how to identify and avoid plagiarism in legal or other writing. The author also discusses referencing in compliance with the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, now in its third edition. Referencing to social media such as Twitter, Facebook, e-books and apps is discussed and 'how to' examples provided. Ancillary exercises including solutions will further support learning. Not only will this book be useful for early learning, but it will serve as an excellent ongoing reference in students' law studies.
