The Bluebook is a style manual that contains the national citation rules most often used by U.S. law students, faculty, and federal courts. Originally published in 1926, the current edition is the 19th, which is updated periodically to reflect new types of citations. The popularity ofThe Bluebook among law students and legal professionals has resulted in a new term: Bluebooking.
Bluebooking is the process of editing legal texts to ensure that assertions are supported by citations that conform to the rules in The Bluebook.
