Bluebook Help

Postby lawyerwannabe » Sun Jul 01, 2012 10:29 pm

Already finished casenote competition, so simmer. This is for summer work.

Does anyone know how to cite a letter that was sent from a national society to a governmental organization? Thanks!

It's called the index. It's in the back of the book. Turn to it. It's not that hard. The rules for these kinds of things aren't as set as cases. Just embrace it.

Very helpful response, especially considering I would have never thought of that on my own!

Obviously you didn't.

"Letters & memoranda: 142-43, 146, 151, 160, 170, 222, 226"

Saw that before posting here. Doesn't really address what I was looking for, so was wondering if someone could give me more specifics.

O well, I guess not. I solved the citing problem in a different way, though. So /thread..

What? Those rules cover exactly how you would cite it. You have to analogize, as I said, because the rules for these things aren't as exact as for cases.
