Hello everyone,

I'm happy to announce that 2015 versions of the Federal Rules of Evidence,
Criminal Procedure and Civil Procedure are now available.  These books are
powered by the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University Law School
and distributed by the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction's
eLangdell Press.  The books come in .epub format, which is compatible with
iPads, Nooks, Android devices and basically everything but kindles.

These editions of the books include:

   - The complete rules as of December 1, 2014 (for the 2015 edition).
   - All notes of the Advisory Committee following each rule.
   - Internal links to rules referenced within the rules.
   - External links to the LII website's version of the US Code.

And yes, all totally free.  You are more than welcome to download as many
copies as you'd like and add to digital collections.  Here are the direct
links to the books:

While you are at the eLangdell Press bookstore, you may want to take a look
at the growing collection of primary law (including the Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure [
http://www.cali.org/books/federal-rules-bankruptcy-procedure-2014-2015] and
Appellate Procedure [
http://www.cali.org/books/federal-rules-appellate-procedure-2014-2015] and
legal classics available, as well as our open law school casebooks.  We'll
be adding to this collection as time permits, but if you have any
suggestions or requests for primary law (federal or state) or public domain
works to be added to the eLangdell collection, please don't hesitate to us
know.


Thanks,
Sarah
