EndNote Law: Install

This study guide has been designed to bring together all the links you need in order to install and use Endnote for law. Apart from the link to downloading the Endnote proram itself, there are links- and instructions - to help you download the AGLC (3rd ed) referencing style into Endnote and also the Reference Types table which provides many more legal reference type templates. 

A guide to installing Law reference styles for use with EndNote.

At UTS the EndNote legal referencing style is based on the Australian Guide to Legal Citation (3rd edition, 2010) published by the Melbourne University Law Review, and is called AGLC (UTS).

To use this style with EndNote you will need to download and save 2 small files: 
Law Reference types e.g. Cases, Legislation, books, journals, treaties etc 
AGLC style: this allows you to correctly format references and use them with Word. It should already be downloaded on all UTS computers in public areas.
