Bootleg Bluebooks???

Posted on: | by Brian Detweiler | 1 Comment

Yes, you read that right! According to our colleagues at the Brooklyn Law School Library, some law students who purchased Bluebooks through third-party vendors unknowingly bought scanned knock-off copies: http://www.blslibrary.com/tag/richard-posner/.

You can check your Bluebook using the images in the original BLS Library Blog post, and if you did pick up a bootleg 20th edition, don’t worry! The UB Law Library has several (legitimate) copies you can use: http://catalog.lib.buffalo.edu/vufind/Record/003681375.

    Thank you very much for this post and making us aware of this issue. I am one of the unlucky ones 🙁 I didn’t notice until I looked at the images. Not very good. I’ll try and get a copy from the library instead.

    Thanks again,
