ALWD Citation Manual: A Professional System of Citation, Fourth Edition
I use this book for 2 of my classes, Legal Writing and Legal Research.
I obviously intend on keeping this manual until the next edition comes out.
First, the coil binding is problematic. The terminal coil ends with the end bent at 90 degrees toward the book. Assuming I can start out with it laying correctly, it never ends that way. My pages have this giant gouge at the bottom from where the mechanics of the coil create conditions of ever increasing scraping. Not my favorite thing to do to have to stop what I'm doing and fix it because the margins allow for little buffer to safety.
Second, you'll see the same topics and headings under increasing difficulty. I understand wanting to build up to it but I would much rather have one section dedicated to just opinions and a separate one for Supreme Court and a separate one for each topic. I was doing the ICW quizzes on LexisNexis and it took me an hour each quiz because of having to decipher the ways of the book. Even the was was like, "No, sorry, we're looking at chapter 16 but you really need to go to chapter 12 because of this Supreme Court exception. " Also, ALWD needs to start lobbying in every state for some consistency. The general rules are not so general.
