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.
