    Bluebook citations in Word 2010

    Are there any built-in forms in Word 2010 for legal referencing and citing? Input and/or output?

    Regards,

    Not that I am aware of. There is, of course, the Table of Authorities function. That allows you to have both a long and short citation form.

    Among other things, I have a character style called citation which is Italic and marked to not check spelling and grammar. I use it to mark anything used as a citation. (The actual volume and page are not so marked - just the name.)

    I make regular use of the hard space (Ctrl-Shift-Space) when typing citations so that the ### N.W.2d ### is all on one line. I have AutoText (Building Blocks) for most authorities I cite.

    The Table of Authorities feature works nicely when customized to meet the briefing requirements of a jurisdiction.

    In actually looking at the Blue Book, I see that my Citation style should be underlined rather than Italicized. The courts haven't given me any grief with it so I guess I'll leave it alone. The advantage of having it be a style is that I can change all of my citations at once if needed.
