It is aimed at academics, lawyers, law students and the judiciary and is a valuable tool for legal writing and research. The AGLC is easy to read and contains a detailed index and useful examples. In addition to a number of citation principles for Australian documents, the AGLC includes suggestions for citing documents from Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The fourth edition was recently published in 2018. AGLC4 brings clarity to the rules and includes more examples to answer frequently asked citation questions.
