The Maroonbook is a system of legal citation that is intended to be simpler and more straightforward than the more widely used Bluebook. It was developed at the University of Chicago and is the citation system for the University of Chicago Law Review. As a simplified and modernized citation method, it tends to be closer to the Oxford Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities in its conventions.
The Maroonbook gives the following examples:
- (1) Case names
- See Ferdinand v Isabella, 14 US 92, 96–98 (1492).
- (2) Titles of periodical articles and articles in edited books
- Eppard Richstein, Elements of Liberty, 21 U Chi L Rev 45, 60 (1954).
- (3) Book and treatise titles
- Friedrich W. Nietzsche, On Truth and Lie in an Extramoral Sense 365 (Oxford 1957) (Edith P. Honeywell, trans).
