CiteGenie is a Firefox add-on that creates real Bluebook pinpoint citations from material you highlight in Westlaw. Normally, these kinds of features and applications aren't reliable, but CiteGenie received a good review here, so it may actually be worth trying.

(Of course, it should go without saying that if you never learn how to create citations, that will eventually be a problem for you.)

I tried Citegenie, and the first case I tried it on, it cited the case differently than I would have cited it. I was ready to uninstall it when I decided to just check the Bluebook just to be sure. Well, after wiping the egg off my face, it turns out Citegenie was right and I was wrong -- and I've always considered myself a Bluebook expert. I also like the fact that it will do citations in the specific format for my state.
