When the boss’ boss says, “Hey Josh, this should go on our blog,” well, guess what? It goes on the blog.
For those of you who wish that your casebooks were available as audiobooks, you’ll be pleased to know about a relatively new service called AudioCaseFiles that provides MP3s of several hundred court opinions that are in law school casebooks. You can search for cases by name or citation, or you can view cases organized by caseboook or by the following topics: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Corporations, Criminal Law, Evidence, Property Law, and Torts.
Many cases are being added. At present, some of the links to audio say “Coming Soon” and provide an option to be notified by e-mail when the audio is made available.
For now, AudioCaseFiles is free, though it may not remain so. According to the fine folks at WisBlawg, the service works smoothly with iPods and seems to be generally well-received by law students.
