Abstract:     
Constitutional Commentary has decided to abandon The Chicago Manual of Legal Citation in favor of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. This decision should not be construed as a wholesale endorsement of the Bluebook. Constitutional Commentary feels no obligation to defer to the law reviews at Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Penn on any subject, least of all on questions of legal citation. Constitutional Commentary has identified specific Bluebook rules that it will ignore, modify, or clarify. All rules of legal citation, including those outlined here, may be suspended when common sense so dictates. Where Bluebook rules have proved undesirable, unworkable, or ugly in the experience of Constitutional Commentary's editors, they will be broken without hesitation or regret. In the spirit of norm entrepreneurship, Constitutional Commentary invites other journals to adopt any of its rules. Acknowledgement is appreciated but not necessary.
