Summary "Assists the legal profession in citing legal authorities according to the rules given in The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, 20th edition (2015). This title is a companion to The Bluebook (not a replacement) and applies Bluebook rules to a representative collection of common legal authorities. The citations included are based on Bluebook rules, and the abbreviations are those found in The Bluebook or derived from its guidelines. Besides updating both Bluebook and state court rule references, this edition has been updated to reflect Twentieth Edition Bluebook revisions. The section concerning Internet, electronic media, and other nonprint resources has been revised and expanded. Public domain information has been updated and includes additional domestic jurisdictions that now employ this form of citation. New or revised entries include e-books, legal dictionaries, Facebook, Linkedin, online newspapers, newspaper editorials and opinions, plays, press releases, Twitter, American Law Institute publications such as Restatements, uniform acts, and model codes, and examples throughout the book citing to online sources"--Publisher's website.
