Following up on David’s prior post on iPad apps, I wanted to highlight an exciting new app. It comes from two of my favorite legal information organizations: CALI, the Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction (http://www.cali.org/) and the Legal Information Institute (http://www.law.cornell.edu/). Everyone loves the pocket copies of the Federal Rules printed by Lexis and Westlaw for carrying to class, but now you can take a copy of the Federal Rules with you wherever you go– CALI and LII have created eBook versions of the Federal Rules of Evidence, Criminal Procedure, and Civil Procedure.
There are both epub and mobi versions of the books, so they can be read on Nook, Kindle, iPad, iPhone, and any other device that supports the epub format. Best of all, they’re free (though a donation to LII is suggested). You can find and download them at http://elangdell.cali.org/content/federal-rules-ebooks-legal-information-institute.
Have a great Fall Break and Happy Outlining!
