Rule B.5: Use of Signals
As a general rule, introductory signals may be used only in the manner described in Bluebook Rule 1.2. Please note the following:
- The word “also” is not a signal unto itself. It does not function in the same manner as “e.g.” Rather, “also” may only be used in the signal “see also.” Thus, “accord also” or “but see also” would be inappropriate signals.
- Staffers should seldom suggest the use of the “see generally” signal, but should usually retain that signal when it is used by the author.
