The new, fifth edition of the ALWD Guide to Legal Citation is about to be released. Advance copies were displayed at the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools. Despite the reactions in this photo (of blog editors Mark Wojcik and Coleen Barger), the ALWD Manual is a book you'll want to have, use, and teach. This new version, revised by Coleen Barger, eliminates all of the distinctions between the ALWD Manual and the Bluebook. There is now no excuse whatsoever for not using the ALWD Manual in your teaching -- and you'll be glad you did.
