EndNote: EndNote for Law (AGLC)

EndNote for Law

The instructions below alter some of the reference types (e.g. journal article, case) to better suit the needs of legal citation. This will be most useful to you if you primarily use EndNote for legal citation, and only use other referencing styles occasionally.

To set up EndNote for law, follow the links below. The PDF document also explains how to use EndNote to insert AGLC4-style citations in Word.

AGLC (Australian Guide to Legal Citation) and EndNote

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) has created an output style for legal referencing using EndNote that conforms with the requirements of the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (4th edition).
There are two files to download and install from the UTS EndNote Law: Install webpage:

  • Legal Reference Types
  • AGLC4 (UTS) style

Follow the download and installation instructions on the webpage.

UTS also provides a guide explaining which EndNote fields to use when citing legal materials: EndNote Law: Citations.

  • To apply this style in a Word document, under the 'EndNote' tab, change the 'Style' to AGLC4 (UTS).
  • You will need to insert a footnote via the 'References' tab, and then use the 'EndNote' tab to insert the citation in the footnote.
  • Add a pinpoint by clicking on 'Edit & Manage Citation(s)' in the menu bar, and entering the pinpoint in the box labeled 'Pages'.

Instructions for use

Once you have the Legal Reference Types and AGLC4 Style set up, follow the instructions on the Getting Started page, or in the PDF Guide on the right.
