Bluebook Style Formatting

Formatting your document can be a time consuming and arduous process. Save time and let us do it for you. The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation—often referred to simply as The Bluebook—is an internationally used legal citation system. The majority of U.S. law schools and U.S. federal courts use The Bluebook; however, it is an intimidating style guide for both students and experienced members of the law profession as it is complex and frequently updated. We have several PhD-educated editors who are experts in Bluebook formatting, who could format your document for you, correctly, the first time.

Hiring a Bluebook Expert Will Save You Time and Energy

The Bluebook includes the introductory “Bluepages” that provide an overview of the guidelines for everyday citations, such as those used by law students and elementary legal professionals. The majority of The Bluebook, however, is written and presented in the style and level of complexity comparable to that of the law journal publication process. Our skilled and professionally trained specialists in Bluebook legal citation have decades of professional editing, formatting, and legal experience. If you would like to avoid the stress of learning or refreshing your familiarity with the frequently-changing Bluebook guidelines, our PhD-educated Bluebook specialists would be happy to help.

I was struggling with the incorporation of tables and figures into my thesis and my university provided no help. I found Thesis Editor by accident; I would recommend their service to anyone in similar difficulties.  They not only assisted with tables and figures but also with formatting according to UK requirements (I am an American non-resident student).  The response time was excellent and Dr. Dawn Leach always met strict deadlines.  Altogether an excellent way to get help with the details of the dissertation process.
