The Foreign Jurisdictions of The Bluebook

Back before the 18th Edition of The Bluebook was published, we were asked to help revamp table T.2 Foreign Jurisdictions.  We have a great group of almost two dozen foreign law specialists (that Kelly previously mentioned) who come from around the world to work at the Law Library of Congress.  In other words, we have the perfect resource to help update this section.

It was one of my first big projects after I started working here.  In coordinating this project, I really got to know a lot of our foreign law specialists.  After it was published we had a nice mention:

With special editorial assistance on the citation of foreign jurisdictions from the Directorate of Legal Research of the Law Library of Congress.

I was thrilled!

We did such a good job that The Bluebook editors asked us to help again with the recently released 19th Edition.  Thankfully, they still liked our work and gave us another nice mention.
