Basic Legal Citation. LII
This work first appeared in 1993. It was most recently revised in the fall of 2013 following a thorough review of the actual citation practices of judges and lawyers. As has been true of all editions released since 2010, it is indexed to the fourth edition of the ALWD Citation Manual and the nineteenth edition of The Bluebook. But it also documents the many respects in which contemporary legal writing, very often following guidelines set out in court rules, diverges from the citation formats specified by those academic texts.
