Lighten your book load by using ebooks! Many legal books are now available for mobile devices—whether through services like Amazon’s Kindle platform or through free resources, such as those offered by CALI’s eLangdell Bookstore. The eLangdell Bookstore has a variety of free legal ebooks under the Creative Commons license that are available across multiple platforms: PDF, ePub (for non-Kindle reading devices), Mobi (for Kindle), and even MS Word. A few of the topics covered: property, contracts, basic legal citation, evidence, securities law, Federal Rules of Evidence/Civil Procedure/Criminal Procedure, and ethics of tax law.
