Citing United Nations Materials

Use the Library Guide to Citing and Referencing for different styles where possible

If there is no example available use the style manual for the stye you are using. If this does not provide adequate guidance use the AGLC3 (Australian Guide to Legal Citation).

The United Nations provides  information on citing and referencing following the Bluebook Style, a US style for citing  legal materials which  includes United Nations documents.  APA and Chicago refer users to the Bluebook style.   

International Agreements, Treaties and Conventions
To reference these you need to find the Volume number, Treaty Series abbreviation,treaty number and date entered into force (EIF). See United Nations Treaty Collection for details.

There is an example of citing a Treaty using the AGLC style on the Citing & Referencing tab of the Law Library Guide.
