Spring CLE Series: Fifty Shades of Grey Can't Hold a Candle to the Legal Profession's Literary...

Not even the erotic romance trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed offers a more compelling, titillating and captivating read, as the legal profession's most enduring, literary masterpiece:  The Bluebook.  In an increasingly diverse and demanding legal profession, The Bluebook continues to provide the systematic method by which members of the legal profession communicate essential information about the multitude of sources and authorities they rely upon.  Come get intimately reacquainted with the definitive guide for legal citation in the United States.
Nicholas Kourvetaris is an attorney at the law firm of O’Hagan Meyer.
