Not if the pincite is the same as the first page.


See page 8 of the 18th Edition (B5): "Bluepages tip: Do not omit a pincite merely because it is the same as the first page of the case report. Without the pincite, the reader will have no way of knowing where the cited material is located. Instead, just repeat the page number[.]"

How bad ass would a Michael-Scofield-in-Prison-Break-style Bluebook tattoo be? Instead of the prison's blueprints, however, it'd be every rule in the Bluebook.

Yeah, I'm just going to shut up now.

btw, to the OP, I hope we helped you make a decision on law school! Just think, you'll be like all of us 1Ls by this time next year!!!!!
