With a subscription to The Bluebook Online, users may pin pages for repeat reference. Users may also utilize a quick and easy search tool to instantly locate results. The search-as-you-type functionality helps maximize efficiency, and you may preview rules to help you find the exact rule you need.

In addition, the Bluebook Online content is current; any changes made to the book will be reflected online. New editions are released in print and online every five years. If you have a current subscription when a new edition is released, you will have immediate access to the contents of the new edition at no additional cost.
