P1200048.JPG Legal publishing is certainly an, er, interesting market. Casebooks are expensive, because the market for them is relatively small– it is limited only to law students. Outside of school, these texts are only marginally useful.
Somehow, this semester I managed to register only for classes that have large and expensive casebooks. In previous semesters this year and last, at least two courses eschewed the textbook for draft texts, course packs and ad hoc collections of cases and materials. Not so in this final semester.
Time to go sell some of last year’s casebooks so as to reclaim some shelf space…
Edit to add: Only one of the books in this photo is for a class I am currently taking. The first person to guess deduce which book is for a class in which I am currently enrolled and post that in the comments will win a fabulous prize from the prize closet…
