Platform: iPhone & iPad
Author: Aspen Publishers Inc.
“Cite-Checker” is a user-friendly and concise guide to Bluebook citation form for legal practitioners. The App provides an overview of Bluebook citation form with plain English explanations of Bluebook rules and clear examples illustrating those rules. Coverage includes federal and state cases, federal and state statutes, secondary authorities (such as books, law review articles, and Restatements), punctuation, quotations, information on how to use the short forms id. and supra, and more. This App provides law students and practitioners with a handy, “on-the-go” quick reference to formatting citations for legal memoranda, legal briefs, and more. The App is divided into 17 separate lessons or “cards,” each of which is devoted to a citation topic and each of which has examples illustrating the point made. For example, there is a lesson or “card” for citation form for cases, and another lesson or “card” for citation form for statutes. The App concludes with a quiz (and its answer key) for those who desire to test their citation form skills.
The App’s table of contents makes finding a pertinent rule or example fast and easy. Users can add their own notes to the cards to remind themselves of needed information or can tag their most frequently used cards for easy retrieval. This quick and easy reference guide to The Bluebook is an invaluable tool for law students and practitioners who need a clear and concise explanation and example of citation form for the most frequently used legal authorities.
