Law School Affordable Course Materials

Tips for faculty when selecting course materials

The BC Law Library will work with you on these suggested steps:

  • The Law Library subscribes to Courtroom Cast, a database with audio versions of major casebooks.  This service is titled AudioCasefiles on the Courtroom Cast site. Students can listen to casebook content.  This site also offers sample video of court proceedings, administrative hearings, etc.
  • Notify the Law Library with the title and edition of your assigned coursebook prior to the start of the semester.  We will put one copy on Course Reserve for students to use.
  • Consider using the same edition of the coursebook for two years if possible; provide links to free caselaw or other sources to supplement and update the content. Need assistance with this process? Check with your law librarian liaison.
  • Select your class readings from open source content or from the many databases licensed by Boston College; you can post this content to your Canvas or TWEN course website.  Need assistance with this process? Check with your law librarian liaison.
