Terms of Use - Groups

A group subscription to Bluebook Online (a “Group Subscription”) allows the specified number of members to access the Bluebook Online simultaneously during the term of subscription. By registering for a Group Subscription (including a Team or Professional Subscription) to the Bluebook Online, you represent that you have the authority to act on behalf of the group and each of its members with regard to their access to the Bluebook Online. You agree that all members will access the Bluebook Online subject to the generally applicable Terms of Use appearing at https://www.legalbluebook.com/terms, as supplemented by these Terms of Use for Group Subscriptions, as each may be updated by us from time to time at our sole discretion. You agree that we may deny access at any time without liability in case of violation by any individual member of the group, either to that member or to the group as a whole. You agree you are responsible for any loss or liability arising out of any violation of the Terms of Use by any individual member of the group. In these Terms of Use, references to “we” or “us” refers to the Harvard Law Review Association, on behalf of itself, the Columbia Law Review Association, Inc., the Yale Law Journal Company, Incorporated and the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, collectively.

Additional Limitations for Governmental Entities. A “Governmental Entity” means any United States or non-United States (a) federal, state, local, municipal, or other government; (b) governmental or quasi-governmental entity of any nature (including any governmental agency, branch, department, official, or entity and any court or other tribunal); or (c) body exercising or entitled to exercise any administrative, executive, judicial, legislative, police, regulatory, or taxing authority or power of any nature, including any arbitral tribunal (public or private), any regulatory or supervisory authority or any self-regulatory organization. Any Governmental Entity comprising of one or more sub-entities must purchase a separate Group Subscription for each of its sub-entities. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and as an illustrative example, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DOHS”) may not purchase a single Group Subscription for the entirety of DOHS but must purchase a separate Group Subscription for each of it sub-agencies, such as Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) and Transportation Security Administration (“TSA”). Similarly, for further example, the Administrative Office of the Courts may not purchase one Group Subscription for the entire federal judiciary. Instead, each circuit must purchase its own Group Subscription.
