Legal Style Manuals: “The Bluebook: Uniform System of Citation”

By
The current edition of “The Bluebook: Uniform System of Citation,” is the 19th.
The editors come out with a new edition about once every five years, so a new edition will not be coming out any time soon.  But their website offers free updates between editions.
Law schools can subscribe to an electronic version, but the editors expect the print version will continue to be published.
Note: In Oregon, the Oregon Judicial Department (OJD) has a Oregon Appellate Style Manual (from their Publications website), that uses The Bluebook to fill in gaps: The OJD Style Manual says, “The Bluebook is used as the default source for citation questions not addressed here.” (p. 17)
