I purchased this book for a class and it has been very helpful. It is a great reference book for court abbreviations and different (proper) ways to cite cases. I really like the spiral binding that lets me keep a page open while I am typing. It has been easy to find exactly what I am looking for as well.

As a 1L, I remember finding the Bluebook initially difficult to use for a bunch of reasons, but especially because Bluebook has two sets of rules depending on whether you are writing for law review or for work. The ALWD manual has just one set of rules for everybody. Simple. If you need to cite a case, then flip to the sub-chapter titled "case citations" and find everything you need on the subject right there. Unlike the Bluebook, this is divided into normal chapters (like most other textbooks), so you don't have to waste time flipping back and forth looking for stuff. Again, simple and easy. Unlike the Bluebook, you don't waste a bunch of time "learning" how to use this because it is intuitive.

I am a 1L, and I will need this book for future writing assignments. I will also keep this handy as a desktop reference. It is a very useful resource and learning tool for looking up Citations as well as showing you how to cite cases. It has a great big spring type binding which allows you to open to a page, fold it over, and it'll lie flat. Very happy with this purchase!

I needed this book for an advanced legal research class. This book is much more user-friendly than the Blue and Green books. I can look up information quickly and have a clearer understanding of the sources.

Excellent manual for the newby as well as the seasoned legal researcher. Also, can't beat the pricing and quality of the product.

Great ship time. Many prefer blue book but this
is what our school requires because it is more student friendly
especially for 1L's.
