When writing a law review article, insert citations as FOOTNOTES. Do not insert the citation into the text, like when you are writing a brief. (Although on occasion it may be appropriate to cite to a case in the text.)
For this class, it is best to use parallel citations. If you are not using parallel citations, select the reporter as specified in Bluebook table 1. For this example, it is the Northeastern Reporter, N.E.2d.
