About the Connected Casebook
In July 2014, Wolters Kluwer Legal Education announced the launch of the Connected Casebook, a major new initiative intended to significantly advance the effectiveness of core law school learning materials.The Connected Casebook is currently available for 14 titles and expanding across the balance of the list in forthcoming years. It combines a hardcover or looseleaf textbook with a new, powerful online learning tool. Accessible on computers and tablets, www.casebookconnect.com delivers a fully integrated suite of tools that respond to the broad range of demands students face in rigorous law school classrooms, including
- an ebook component, where students can read, search, highlight, and annotate the full text of their casebook;
- a study center component, where students have access to thousands of video and text explanations of difficult concepts, assessment questions, practice essays, as well as hypothetical and issue-spotting exercises; and
- an outline component, where students can quickly create effective course-long outlines, directly integrating excerpts and notes from the textbook.
Designed in collaboration with hundreds of faculty and students, the Connected Casebook is a significant advance in the legal education learning tools available to students.
