About the User’s Guide to The Bluebook®

The Bluebook®: A Uniform System of Citation is still the dominant authority on proper legal citation form. Unfortunately, this edition—like its predecessors—is complicated, picky, and long. This Guide is designed to make your task of mastering The Bluebook® as easy and painless as possible. It helps alleviate the obstacles faced by students—and even lawyers—when using proper citation form. This text is designed as a how-to manual and takes a step-by-step approach to learning the basic skills of citation. It explains The Bluebook® rules, and information for each topic is found in one section rather than scattered throughout as in The Bluebook®.

For nearly 95 years, law students, lawyers, scholars, judges, and other legal professionals have relied on The Bluebook’s authoritative system of citation. Compiled by the Harvard Law Review Association, the Columbia Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, and the Yale Law Journal, The Bluebook® remains the most widely used legal citation system in the United States.

The Bluebook® governs the style and formatting of various references and elements of a legal publication, including capitalization, italicization, quotations, abbreviations, and more. The newest edition retains the same basic approach to legal citation established by its predecessors, though the layout has been updated to make the information easier to access. Some citation forms have been expanded, elaborated upon, or modified from previous editions to reflect the ever-expanding range of authorities used in legal writing and to respond to suggestions from the community.
