How to cite without distracting the reader

First-year law students struggling with citations may want to consult Suggestions for Citing Authority  Hazelwood without Distracting the Reader, by University of Kentucky Professor Kristin Hazelwood. Two of its tips are to keep citations at the end of the sentence and to use explanatory parentheticals only for additional information, not to replace text. These and the article’s other suggestions are available at page 16 of the May 2014 issue of the Kentucky Bench and Bar Magazine.
