Cite-Checker App

If you are looking for a little help with your legal citations, you may want to take a look at the Cite-Checker app from Wolters Kluwer, which is part of the publisher’s popular Law in a Flash series. This app serves as a guide to the Bluebook, providing plain English explanations of the rules with examples.  It covers the rules for specific resources like cases, statutes, books, and law review articles as well as non-resource specific concepts such as the rules for quotations, punctuation, and short form citations.  The app contains 17 different sections covering various Bluebook rules and concepts and has a table of contents to help you find the information you need quickly.

The app is available for Android and iOS devices and is only $2.99.  For more information and to download the app, visit the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
