Introduction to Basic Legal Citation
This work first appeared in 1993. It was most recently revised in the fall of 2012 to take account of changes in the citation rules of a small number of U.S. jurisdictions and the format of currency information furnished for statutes by LexisNexis and Westlaw. As was true of the editions released in 2010 and 2011 it is indexed to the fourth edition of the ALWD Citation Manual and the nineteenth edition of The Bluebook, both published in 2010.
The eBook versions are based off of the 2012 online edition of Introduction to Basic Legal Citation by Peter W. Martin. Professor Martin requests that you donate to the Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law if you would like to show your support for this free work.
A companion “wiki” also allows users to raise questions, post comments, elaborate upon the work’s introductory treatment or extend its coverage to other types of material or jurisdictions. This is primarily not an "ask the author" or "tell the author" forum. It aims rather to provide a framework that will allow those teaching and learning about legal citation, as well as professionals confronting an unfamiliar citation challenge, to discuss, extend and improve the underlying work.
