The new section of the Bluebook provides uniformity and consistency on how to cite legal documents and actions that are affected by or related to government contracts
Washington, D.C. (Vocus) April 28, 2009
A graduate of The George Washington University (GW) Paralegal Studies Master's Program and two GW professors have written a new section of the 19th edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. The Bluebook, a staple for students and professionals in the legal field, prescribes a standard way of citation in writing unique to the legal profession. Graduate Philip Greene, Richard D. Lieberman, GW Law School professorial lecturer, and Jason D. Morgan, GW professorial lecturer in paralegal studies, have written a new section of The Bluebook that describes how to cite legal documents, decisions, and actions that involve government contracts. Citation formats in this area have never before been standardized.
"The new section of the Bluebook provides uniformity and consistency on how to cite legal documents and actions that are affected by or related to government contracts," said Greene. "It's fitting that The George Washington University has led this effort since it's at the center of the nation's capital and the United States Government, and only a few blocks away from the White House."
"The paralegal program's association with the University's Law School and the strong support we have enjoyed from University administration have always allowed us to operate at the very highest levels of academic excellence and professionalism," said GW Paralegal Program Director Toni Marsh. "It is gratifying to be a part of such a vibrant and learned community."
The GW Master's in Paralegal Studies degree program is offered in both online and traditional classroom-based formats. Graduates gain the advanced knowledge needed to become leaders in their field and a credential respected by the country's most prestigious law firms. The program is accredited by the Middle States Association or Colleges and School and is an institutional member of the American Association for Paralegal Education.
