The four major law school book publishers -- Aspen, Foundation Press, LexisNexis, and West -- have agreed to provide free course materials to Loyola-New Orleans and Tulane law students displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
We will provide replacement titles for those students who lost Aspen books in the hurricane and its aftermath, or students who are enrolling in sections at other schools using an Aspen title different than the one they purchased. We ask that these requests come from the school – academic dean, registrar, etc. All school requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.950.5259, where they will be given highest priority. Books will be sent to the school requestor for student distribution, unless we are directed to send to another distribution point (bookstore, direct to students, etc).
Foundation Press and West:
In an effort to assist Tulane and Loyola-New Orleans law students in need of Fall textbooks, West Law School and Foundation Press are providing new or replacement course materials free of charge to those impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Those in need should contact Christopher Hart, Director of Sales and Account Management for West Law School and Foundation Press at 800.313.9378 or Christopher.Hart@thomson.com. Requests should include the name of the student's home law school, the name of the student's Fall 2005 law school, the author and title of the book(s) being requested and current shipping and contact information for the student.
LexisNexis' Law School Publishing group has implemented a plan to respond to the needs of law school students displaced by Hurricane Katrina. LexisNexis will provide free coursebooks to all displaced students enrolled in a law school class that requires a LexisNexis coursebook. LexisNexis will also provide free copies of relevant titles from our Understanding Series and our Q & A Series to all displaced students enrolled in a law school class that corresponds to a title in our Understanding and Q & A product lines.
To receive this assistance, an appointed school administrator (e.g., the registrar) must make this contact on behalf of the displaced student(s) who have been invited to participate in their Fall 2005 program. Requests must include:
- Students' name
- Mailing address
- Email address (if any)
- Phone number
- Home law school
- Author name & title of adopted LexisNexis coursebook
- Fall 2005 course listing (to determine relevant study aid titles to send to each student).
