Learning Tools

Outline Accelerator

Most professors will tell you that starting your outline early is key to being successful in your law school classes. The Outline Tool automatically populates your notes and highlights from the e-book into a notebook format to accelerate your outline creation process and increase study time later in the semester.

Case Briefing Tool with Social Sharing (available in casebooks)

Prepare to succeed in your law school class by using the Case Briefing Tool to label key elements of each case as you read your e-book. Simply label each highlighter color for each aspect of a case—for example, facts, rules, holding, etc.—and the Case Briefing Tool will group your highlighted text and notes for each category together in the order you specify.

Then you can test your knowledge with practice questions from best-selling study aids like Examples & Explanations, Emanuel Law Outlines and Emanuel Law in a Flash cards. The Study Center includes:

  • A variety of practice questions like multiple-choice, flashcards, short answer, essays, and issue spotting (options vary by course area)

“I really enjoyed reading my casebook online and being able to quickly highlight text, copy it, and search for keywords in the text easily.”

"I am so grateful for Casebook Connect in helping me understand the basic concepts of Evidence. I felt prepared when it came to my exam."

“I really loved the study section. Using the flashcards and short answer questions was extremely useful in understanding the material.”

“I really liked how searchable the book was. The index was very helpful for courses like Property and made studying easier. I have a lot of friends who had the physical casebook and felt stressed whenever they had to look for a term in the casebook during outlining season.”

“I liked that I was able to do my reading on the online book and highlight and take notes in order to prepare for class. It made my bookbag much lighter being able to carry only my laptop and notebook.”

“It was extremely helpful. I practically never used the book but rather opted to use it online. . . I never had to worry about having books on hand. The study material was amazing to use and was extremely helpful. All in all it was a great service.”
