Reminder: AALL ALL-SIS Special Session, Is the New Bluebook New
Critics have described The Bluebook as "a maze, a thicket, a mutant mass of legalisms run rampant." The 18th edition of The Bluebook is hot off the press. Does this new edition clear up any citation confusion? What are the latest changes? How does it compare with the ALWD Citation Manual? For answers to these questions plan to attend:
Is the New Bluebook New?, 18th Ed.
by Tracy McGaugh, Assistant Professor of Law at South Texas College of Law.
Tuesday, July 19th from Noon – 1 pm, Location TBA.
Presented by the Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section.
AALL Annual Meeting in San Antonio
Prof. McGaugh has asked that attendees bring their 17th editions for cathartic Bluebook fun.
Professor McGaugh's areas of expertise include legal writing, trial and appellate advocacy and legal education. Since 1999, she and co-authors Professor Christine Hurt, Marquette University School of Law, and Professor Kay Holloway, Texas Tech School of Law, have published the Interactive Citation Workbook for both The Bluebook and the ALWD Citation Manual. She frequently lectures on educating the new generation of law students. She is also the featured speaker at this year's Middle Manager's Breakfast.
Thanks to Lee Peoples, Chair of the ALL-SIS Program Committee and Associate Director for Faculty, Research & Instructional Services, Oklahoma City University Law Library, for the information.
