Weegy: Legal-writing professors often lament that the time spent explaining the intricacies of citation intrudes on teaching such fundamental skills as legal research, legal analysis, problem solving, and effective writing. [ This difficulty is especially true in the modern legal-research-and-writing course, which most often is taught by legal-writing professors who integrate legal research with legal analysis and problem solving. Learning these skills takes time and requires many diverse writing assignments. The principal cause of these frustrations has been The Bluebook, the dominant system of legal citation taught in American law schools. The first edition, published in 1926,3 was a mere 26-page pamphlet drafted by Erwin N. Griswold, then a second-year law student at Harvard.4 The pamphlet was an expanded version of an eight-page manual originally prepared as an internal guide to teach Harvard Law Review members how to prepare footnotes for their own law review.5 Eventually, it evolved into a citation guide widely adopted by other law-review editors.6 And in the absence of another comprehensive system of citation, some state and federal courts adopted it for most legal documents.7 The difficulties with The Bluebook are legion. The rules are unnecessarily intricate, arbitrary, and inconsistent. Furthermore, the text and examples are confusing for students. Consequently, The Bluebook is hard to learn and hard to teach. source: ]
