Writing sample question

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jul 02, 2011 1:52 pm

I'm thinking about using a writing sample from my judicial internship in a state court of appeals. The state citation manual is quite a bit different than the Bluebook. Would it be a good idea to keep the citations as they were for my assignment or should I go through and switch them all to Bluebook form?

I would convert them to Bluebook form just to be safe, but I would guess that you would be fine if you noted on your cover page that you used a different citation form. Not entirely sure though.
