2014 Write-On Competition Bluebooking Exercise Directions

Please cut and paste the text as provided in the Bluebooking Exercise into a
separate Word document and correct the footnotes using proper Bluebook format for law
review articles. Additionally, below each footnote, please describe the changes made and
provide the applicable rule.
For Example:
FN1.United States v. Moussaoui, 382 F.3d at 454 (4th Cir. 2004).
Correct FN: United States v. Moussaoui, 382 F.3d 453, 454 (4th Cir. 2004).
Removed improper italicization per BB Rule 10
Corrected pin citation form per BB Rule 3.2(a).
Please do NOT use the Track Changes function in Word. You may NOT check
the authority of footnotes for accuracy or support, or check prior or subsequent case
history. You may, however, use your Bluebook to complete this exercise. This is a
formatting exercise and should be based solely on your knowledge and the Bluebook
rules. Remember that the Honor Code governs the Write-On Competition, and using
Lexis or Westlaw to look up any of the cases or articles in the BlueBooking Exercise
is against the rules of the competition. If you need additional information in order to
properly correct a footnote, simply make a note explaining the information that you need
to reflect the proper citation format.
Additionally, please note that some citations relate to others within this exercise.
Please pretend that these are the first twenty consecutive footnotes in a scholarly
piece. For example, if you see an “Id” citation, assume that it refers to the immediately
preceding citation.
Please include this exercise in your electronic submission and in the packet with
yourcomment, grade release form, and contact sheet.
