A Free Resource of the Law Library: LexisNexis Courtroom Cast

Posted by Library Blog on 08/22/2014 at 11:05 AM

If you have been using CVN Law School to listen to audio of case excerpts from casebooks or watch video of civil litigation or trial advocacy video clips, you can now do that via the new platform LexisNexis Courtroom Cast.   If you have not tried this free resource, you can use it to prepare for class by downloading the cases from your casebooks and listening to them in the car or on the go from any mobile device.  Not only can you download MP3 files of edited judicial opinions, you can also print the opinion with your saved notes using the new inline notes feature.  Browse by subject or casebook or search by keyword.

In addition to downloading cases, you can watch video clips of trials, hearings and oral arguments from the searchable video collection.  Search by practice area and industry or even by jurisdiction and judge. 

To learn from some of the best attorneys in the nation, check out the Courtroom Cast Training libraries.  The training libraries include Trial Advocacy, Rules of Evidence, and Appellate Advocacy.  Watch a video clip of a stage of a trial or a Rule of Evidence or particular aspect of an appellate argument.  Expert commentary and analysis accompany each video clip.
