This paper examines the current narrative of plagiarism and citation style in Anstralia and argues against using citation style guides as both a cure for plagiarism and as a means to determine the act of plagiarism. The paper suggests that legal education should not promote a narrative of citation where citation style and wamings as to the penalties which will be applied in cases of plagiarism take priority over communicating to students an understanding of the processes and benefits of proper and scholarly attributioun of sources.
