Workshop on Reporters and Digests at ONC this week

by Ted McClure 12. September 2011 11:09

To learn about how opinions are published and how to find the opinions you need, come to our Library workshop this week. Case law is at the heart of the common law system. For 900 years, judges in England and then America have created law by adjusting existing law to novel facts. Published judicial opinions coupled with the doctrine of stare decisis guide further application of the common law and provide stability in the legal system.

  • Tuesday day, noon-1:00pm, Room 1821
  • Wednesday evening, 7:45-8:45pm, Room 1821

Workshop: The Bluebook

by Ted McClure 6. September 2011 17:06

The Library will be presenting an Introduction to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation this week.

  • Wednesday, September 7, 7:45 to 8:45pm (yes, that's tomorrow night)
  • Thursday, September 8, noon to 1:00pm
  • Friday, September 9, noon to 1:00pm

In Room 1821. Please bring your Bluebooks with you.

Understanding The Bluebook is really, really important for your success in law school. There are two big reasons we inflict it on you. First, every jurisdiction has rules for preparing and filing court documents, usually based on The Bluebook or something similar, and you need to know the vocabulary. Second, using The Bluebook is an exercise in following the dots. Lots of dots. Following complicated instructions, understanding and using complicated rules, these are essential skills in the practice of law. So you need this class. See you there.
