Style in the Journal conforms generally to Enid Campbell’s and Gretchen Kewley’s Presentation of Legal Theses (3rd ed, Faculty of Law, Monash University, 1996).  Footnotes are referenced accordingly, although Harvard-style text notes are also acceptable.  For a simplified guide to our preferred style see the Style Guide
