This is a generic template for a law review article. It is modeled after the Word law review article template that Eugene Volokh created. This template, in addition to converting the coding from Word to LaTeX, adds some features. It includes the option of having multiple authors, using a table of contents, and including an abstract. The code indicates how to modify the template for an article with multiple authors and how to remove the table of contents, the abstract, or both. While there have been a few attempts to create a package that will automatically format citations using the Bluebook style, they have not gone very far or been very successful. So, you are left on your own. I have given examples in the text of how to use LaTeX codes to achieve the Bluebook style, which may help guide you. These should help you with most of the typesetting styles you need, and you can use the Bluebook to determine the particular requirements for a cite.
As part of our Community Resources for teachers running courses, workshops and events, here we provide an Overleaf-version of the excellent quick guide to LaTeX, originally by Dave Richeson (reproduced with his kind permission).
This version is perfect for sharing as a PDF, or as a two-sided printed handout. If you'd like to tweak it to suit your workshop, you can open it as a template to make edits to the source. Please note that the Overleaf logos themselves shouldn't be altered, but you can find alternative versions here if you'd prefer. If you make substantial edits to the template, or find other uses for it, please let us know!
We also have a complementary PDF listing the Overleaf keyboard shortcuts, available here.
If you're looking for a fuller guide to LaTeX to share with you students, we have a free online course, a learn LaTeX in 30-minutes quick start guide, and many other in-depth tutorials and examples on our learn wiki.
License note: the text content / source code of the handout is provided under the CC BY 4.0 license, as is Dave Richeson's original version. If you modify the template, guidance on the use of the Overleaf logos is available here.
Customizable template (pdfLaTeX version) for typesetting theses in English.
