  AALL Citation Formats Committee - Universal Case Citation
Specialized citations could be devised for each new layer of this electronic record, but the wiser course is to design a set of universal citation standards which can be used to locate law both in books and any subsequent electronic format.
By this test, the citation 100 Ark. 200, 201 is not medium-neutral, since the data elements representing the volume and page where the case is found have relevance only in a printed medium and have no natural meaning in electronic formats.
Case names should conform to rule 10.2 and related rules of The Bluebook, except that a researcher may cite an opinion from any source so long as it contains the data elements used in the AALL universal case citation.
