Annoyed by law review editors’ insistence on citations for everything?

IMG_0735There’s help for scholars who are annoyed when law review editors insist on citations for everything. The Green Bag offers a short piece with a suitably generic title for authors stuck without a citation for an obvious point. A citation to The Theory of Law, by Professor Orin S. Kerr, will lead readers to this authoritative statement: “If you have been directed to this page by a citation elsewhere, it is plainly true that the author’s claim is correct.” The Green Bag’s micro-symposium on Kerr’s piece offers other trenchant observations on the citation problem.
