Good luck. All I can say.

Remember--ask why. Bluebook when you draft--don't wait until later. Full cite everything--at the end you can shorten cites, and you won't put your short cite ahead of your full cite or vice-versa through editorial rearranging. And the table of authorities will take a day. It just will.

Our prof has been drilling us on cites for a while now so I see how important is. I feel like I have a decent idea on how to cite correctly for the most part but there are so many nuances with certain parts of it that it's hard to always be right. It isn't due until the end of the week so I'm glad I have some time to start it early and go over it.
I've heard so many 2L say they put off this class and it really hurt them
Pretty much just sitting here with my bluebook and some example guides but TLS is distracting 8)
