The Faculty of Law defines plagiarism as:
Intentionally, knowingly or recklessly representing the words or ideas of another as one’s own in any academic exercise, including, without limitation, the intentional, knowing, or reckless failure to give attribution when making a direct quotation or when paraphrasing or borrowing facts or information.
(a) Always acknowledge the direct use of someone else’s words
(b) Always acknowledge words you paraphrase from any source
(c) Always acknowledge text you summarize from any source
(d) Always cite the source of any idea which is not your original thought
• If you express the same idea as the source you are using, you need to cite the source fully.
• Even if you use your own words to convey the ideas of another, you will be guilty of plagiarism if you do not cite or reference the original source.
Please refer to the Policy on Plagiarism and other forms of Academic Dishonesty and Misconduct of June 2011.
