This Cite-Checking seminar presupposes familarity with core BlueBook principles and is intended to cover topics not typically covered in the Introduction to Cite-Checking seminar.  The seminar will be three hours in length, and will cover the following: 

  • The first hour wil be a reviewand refresher of basic citation principles.
  • During the second hour, new topics will be covered, including the use of parentheticals, citing administrative materials, preparing tables of authorities, and citing to court documents.
  • During the third and final hour, attendees will work on some citation exercises and correct errors in a court brief.  The group will then receive an answer key for the exercises and work together on cite-checking and correcting the court brief.
