Blue Book Changes to 19th Edition

This may not be the most interesting topic to readers, but the Blue Book just came out with a new edition. Legal form is actually important. A uniform form is important because it makes it easier from lawyers to find the cited authority and shepardize it electronically. It is also a reflection of legal quality. A brief which is full of inappropriate citation form just does not look good.

Cynthia Pittson of Pace Law Library recently put together a summary of changes to the 19th Edition. Her summary can be found here.
