Webinar Today: How Law Schools Can Save $150 Million Using Open Casebooks

AALS Summer Webinar Series: How Law Schools Can Save $150 Million Using Open Casebooks:

ElangdellThe casebook is over 100 years old. It’s mostly filled with public domain cases, but yet, it often costs over $200. The economic system that outsources casebook production to traditional publishers could be handled by a nimble non-profit and paid authors — paid MORE than they get from royalties, I claim.

This would also fuel innovations in teaching materials, better updates, richer interaction. Is this all a unicorn hunt?

In this presentation, John Mayer, Executive Director of CALI, will talk about open casebooks. Besides CALI’s eLangdell Press, many other law faculty are self-publishing or opening up their casebooks for students to freely download. You should too.

The webinar is today at 2:00 p.m. EST. Registration is here.

Great! Remember we paid the judges, legislators and staff to write nearly all the contents that matter under clear open access and federal copyright free laws. Taxpayer funded universities must reject the casebook cash grab!
