Research Guides

This week’s featured research guide is “Bluebook Citation 101: Practitioner Format“. The guide will help you properly cite to your sources in memoranda and briefs. The format for these documents is different than it is for law review articles. Use the guide to help you become a Bluebook master!

A Fresh Look for the College of Law Scholarship Repository

Working with our partners at bepress we’ve updated the look of our scholarship repository. The repository is the go-to site for open access to articles and other materials from faculty at the College of Law. The Marx Law Library is proud to facilitate making our faculty’s hard work more widely available, and we strongly support open access to legal scholarship.

The repository also hosts the online presence of the University of Cincinnati Law Review and will soon host our newest and exclusively online student-edited publication, the University of Cincinnati Intellectual Property and Computer Law Journal.

Almost to Spring Break!

We in the Law Library know that students are looking forward to spring break next week, when many will take a well-deserved few days off from books and brief-writing. And since the break comes at a little past the mid-point of the semester, it’s a downhill run from here, right?
