In higher education, open textbooks have created new ways to learn, share, and adapt knowledge - and save students money in the meantime. For casebooks that can cost law students hundreds of dollars each, this gives law schools the opportunity to create casebooks to serve their communities.
What do open casebooks look like? From Contracts (Prof. Charles Fried), Criminal Law (Prof. Jeannie Suk-Gersen), Civil Procedure (Prof. I. Glenn Cohen), Torts (Prof. Jonathan Zittrain) and more, open casebooks are one way to create course content to support the future of legal education.
How can you create a new casebook with 6.7 million unique cases from the Caselaw Access Project? Here’s how!
- Create your casebook (Here’s more on how to get started).
- Select “Add Resource”.
- Under “Find Case”, import your case by citation (Example: 347 U.S. 483).
- Select the case. You’ve just added it to your casebook! Nice 😎.
