Has anyone used the online bluebook?
« on: August 09, 2008, 06:42:31 PM »
I think the subscription is around $25 a year.  I hate flipping through the bluebook for law review, and can never find what I'm looking for.  While it should have the same content, this seems like it may be more user friendly.  Anybody have any experience with it?

Although they are not official, there are several free Bluebook web sites out there. For example, Cornell has this one posted and its keyed to the most recent edition of the Bluebook as well as ALWD:

BU also has this one (Though I haven't found it as helpful as COrnell)

I haven't used the subscription-based one, though you may want to check and see if your LS has a subscription.  Personally, I like the dead-tree version, though I added labeled tabs so I can get to the right area of the BB faster.
