About Legal Education at Wolters Kluwer

Wolters Kluwer's Legal Education is a leading publisher of teaching and learning tools for law school and law-related undergraduate programs in the United States and throughout the world. WK Legal Education has produced extremely high quality, pedagogically rich, market-leading textbooks covering every discipline in law for almost fifty years, and, in recent years, has established a strong track record as an innovator in the market. New product models, such as the Law School Simulation and the Connected Casebook, deliver outcome-oriented, personalized education to a new generation of law students.

Major longstanding product lines include:

  • The Aspen Casebook series (famously known amongst law faculty and students as the "red and black" casebooks) encompasses more than 700 highly regarded textbooks in more than eighty disciplines, from large enrollment courses, such as torts and contracts to emerging electives such as cyberlaw and environmental law;
  • The Examples & Explanations and Emanuel Law series, both highly popular collections of more than eighty readable but thorough study guides and study tools to help law students master complex subject matter;
  • The Reference Book series, including the Bouvier Law Dictionary;
  • And the Paralegal series, including more than forty leading textbooks for undergraduate paralegal programs.

Major new product lines include:

  • The Law School Simulation series, a set of ten highly interactive online modules designed to prepare paralegals and law students for the real-world demands of being a practicing attorney;
  • The Certified Legal Practitioner program, a hybrid online and in-person training course for overseas law school graduates seeking a stronger founding in U.S. law;
  • And a broad library of mobile apps, including the popular Law in a Flash exam prep toolkit.

The Connected Casebook

In July 2014, WK 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 11 titles but expanding across the balance of the list in forthcoming years. It combines a print textbook, available to students on loan for the duration of the class term, with a powerful new online learning tool, www.casebookconnect.com.

Accessible on computers and tablets, www.casebookconnect.com provides students with a fully integrated suite of tools that responds to the broad range of demands students face in law school classrooms, including:

  • an ebook component, where students can read, search, bookmark, 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, and 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 leap forward in the legal education learning tools available to students.

In addition to its educational publications, WK Legal Education partners with the law school community in a variety of ways to facilitate dialogue and collaboration to achieve the collective goal of evolving legal education to better meet the needs of 21st century law students, including through WK Legal Education's community-driven Leading Edge conference, hosted in Riverwoods, Illinois, and through a library of faculty-run blogs.

Wolters Kluwer Legal Education is headquartered in Waltham, MA.
