Avoid Exam-Induced Eyestrain with AudioCaseFiles

At the beginning of the school year, we reported on AudioCaseFiles, which provides audio recording of case law from many of the most popular law school casebooks, calling it “an ideal service for auditory learners, those with long commutes, and perhaps even insomniacs.”

With final exams a month away, we recently revisited AudioCaseFiles and discovered that the option to “Browse Audio by Casebook” includes MP3s of the cases from several 1L casebooks on the spring 2009 book list: Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials (Kadish); Constitutional Law (Chemerinsky); and Property: Cases and Materials (Cribbet).

AudioCaseFiles also offers material of interest beyond the first year: more than 4,000 hours of trial practice videos from real cases in a variety of jurisdictions. The full list of trial video is available at http://www.audiocasefiles.com/crl_cases; you may also browse video by practice area or jurisdiction.

Register for AudioCaseFiles with your law school e-mail address. Access a quick link through the library's Legal Databases and Links page.
