worth reading: The Future of the Casebook

Prof. Matthew Bodie’s article, “The Future of the Casebook: An Argument for an Open-Source Approach” [SSRN], has finally been published in the Journal of Legal Studies. (The electronic version, of course, has been out for some time). The article outlines the case for not merely digital or networked casebooks, but open source (or at least Creative Commons) casebooks.

Prof. Bodie (St. Louis University School of Law) is on the advisory board of eLangdell and helping to turn his idea into a reality.
