The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation —often referred to simply as The Bluebook—is the most widely used legal citation system in the United States. The majority of U.S. law schools and U.S. federal courts use The Bluebook; however, its diverse and often-updated guidelines make it an intimidating style guide for both newcomers and experienced members of the law profession.
