Law, Access, and the Open Casebook

Law schools are facing an access crisis. For students returning to class, and faculty holding courses, the COVID-19 pandemic has made educational resources harder to access and create.

Law students use textbooks that are groups of cases and commentary by authors, known as casebooks. Traditional casebooks can cost hundreds of dollars, and can’t be customized to meet the changing needs of courses today. We have the opportunity to redefine the casebook using open educational resources.

This session will share how instructors are using the H2O platform from Harvard Law School Library to create and adapt open educational resources in law. In this session we will frame access issues facing law students and faculty today, and demonstrate how law schools can use H2O to support their courses.

Learning Outcomes:
This session will share how law schools are using the H2O platform from Harvard Law School Library to create and adapt open educational resources that meet the changing needs of students and faculty.
