How to reference transcript and description of a legal matter

Hi there,

I'm not quite sure about how to reference this source: http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/cases/cth/FCAFC/2012/65.html

I have tried to do it as: 

Federal Court of Australia 2012, ‘Australian and International Pilots Association v Fair Work Australia [2012] FCAFC 65’, Full Court, Australasian Legal Information Institute, 10 May 2012, viewed 7 September 2015, http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/cases/cth/FCAFC/2012/65.html

Could you let me know if you think this is right?
Also, what do I do if I want to use material that is quoted in it (e.g. Alan Joyce's speech which is reproduced in full within the document, point 52?). Do I change the referencing?
Many thanks for your help.

Hi Joanna,

If you are referencing in the Harvard (UTS) style then you would reference a case like this

Australian and International Pilots Association v Fair Work Australia [2012] FCAFC 65 (10 May 2012)

The in text reference would look like this

(Australian and International Pilots Association v Fair Work Australia 2012)

I based this off of our legal materials examples page - http://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/harvard-uts-referencing-guide/legal-material

In terms of the speech you could approach it by quoting Alan Joyce in the body of your writing and then using the in-text reference above or you could say (Joyce, cited in Australian and International Pilots Association v Fair Work Australia 2012)

more examples of how to express that kind of 'quote within a quote' can be found here, under referencing quotations - https://www.lib.uts.edu.au/help/referencing/harvard-uts-referencing-guide/more-information

 

Thanks,

David
