The first thing you usually have to sort out is what method of referencing your teacher requires for the assignment. APA? Harvard?

Happily for you, both APA and Harvard follow the same “recipe” to cite legislation

Short Title of the Act (in italics) Year (in italics) (Jurisdiction abbreviation) subdivision, if relevant.

The Jurisdiction relates to what State the legislation applies to - if it is a Commonwealth Act the abbreviation used is Cth

Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act 1966 (NSW)

More information about referencing and bibliographies is located in our Referencing Systems LibGuide
