Abstract

An important—but sometimes annoying—component of legal writing is citation to controlling authority. Through citation, we should provide our readers with recognizable and accurate references to the sources that form the basis of our legal analyses. The fundamental sources of controlling Colorado law are the Colorado statutes, session laws, rules of procedure, jury instructions and cases. Although The Bluebook forms for these sources are recognizable, they are rarely used in the Colorado courts.
