Legal Citations of Aotearoa New Zealand (LCANZ) provides guidance on the citation of all major New Zealand legal journals and law reporting series. More than 120 law journals and law reporting series are searchable by either title or abbreviation. Examples of citations provided for all entries are in accordance with the New Zealand Law Style Guide (NZLSG). Examples provided are for reported case citations and neutral case citations have not been included -see NZLSG rule 3.2.2.

This is the first online index to New Zealand legal citation and fills a conspicuous gap in New Zealand legal literature. The Index has been compiled by Mary-Rose Russell, formerly at the Davis Law Library at the University of Auckland.
