In the following example, we demonstrate the subsequent citation of a case. The short form of the case name must be sufficient to identify the source.
If the full name of the case is given in the text e.g. AWB Limited v Honourable Terence Rhoderic Hudson Cole, the citation is provided in footnotes as follows:
74  FCA 571.
76 AWB Limited (n. 74).
Interpreting the footnotes:
74 As the name of the case is given in your text, it is not given in the footnote.
76 For subsequent citation, a short form of the case is sufficient to identify the source along with a cross-citation to the full citation.
Note that it is also acceptable to give the full citation every time a source is cited, and the Law School may prefer this to the use of short forms. Always consult your supervisor or course coordinator if you are uncertain about referencing and citing using OSCOLA.
