Wisconsin Guide to Citation
52 pp.; 7th ed., 2012
New 7th edition 2012
Properly format Wisconsin citations
To comply with court standards and to make your sources easy to find, you need to properly format citations to legal authorities in documents submitted to Wisconsin courts and administrative agencies. And for that, you need the Wisconsin Guide to Citation.
It’s not in the Bluebook
As a practical resource for Wisconsin attorneys, support staff, law clerks, and other legal professionals, the Guide emphasizes Wisconsin authorities. This fills the gaps left by The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation, the publication that sets the citation standards nationally, and the standard adopted by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Be up to date
With contributions from Atty. Melissa Greipp, assistant professor of legal writing at Marquette Law School, the Guide has been updated to include changes in the latest edition of The Bluebook. The 2012 edition of the Guide also contains several new sections, including ones discussing the following:
- An introduction to The Bluebook
- Common issues related to case citations
- Generally applicable citation rules
- Public domain citation format for the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Court of Appeals
- Citation to electronic databases and other online sources according to the revised Bluebook rule on citing information found on the Internet
- Wisconsin and U.S. Constitutions
In addition, you’ll find examples of citations to Wisconsin administrative proceedings and appeals, and sources for copies of such decisions.
Avoid confusion and delay by knowing how to properly format Wisconsin citations—acquire the 2012 edition of the Wisconsin Guide to Citation.
