Using the Bluebook and ALWD: Introduction

This guide provides resources which will assist the legal researcher in using the Bluebook and ALWD (Association of Legal Writing Directors) citation manuals.

The guide provides information on where to the find the citation manuals in the Cooley collection as well as where to find additional resources and relevant information regarding legal citation. The annotations provided in this guide are brief descriptions and do not purport to serve as critiques or endorsements of the titles’ contents or authority. The resources listed are those owned or available at the WMU-Cooley libraries.

In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog.
