Still Uncertain How to Cite?

  1. Work from a model. Search for the resource you need to cite in a law review database to see how another article cited it. As authors of the Bluebook, law reviews from Columbia, Harvard, Penn, and Yale should provide good models.
  2. Work from analogy. Try to locate a similar type of authority that is cited and use that citation form as a template.
