HIGHLIGHTS OF BLUEBOOK FORM FOR FEDERAL STATUTES


Rule 12.3 of the Bluebook specifies that statutes should be cited to the official code when possible. Therefore, the standard citation to a federal statute is as follows:

22 U.S.C. § 2567 (2000).

If a statute section in its most up-to-date form does not yet appear in the official United States Code, cite to the United States Code Annotated or the United States Code Service.
