Law book publisher Emond announced it is doing its part to support students and instructors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the company’s press release, to assist students who have lost access to course materials due to campus closures, Emond is offering temporary access to e-book versions of its casebooks at no additional cost. This will ensure as many law students as possible will have continued access to the materials they need to prepare for final exams. Faculty and students can go here to find directions on how to redeem a coupon code for temporary access to its most popular casebooks.

The press release adds that it asks professors to instruct students to only download Emond materials required for April exams. This will minimize pressure on its customer service staff during this busy time. It also encourages students to carefully read the download instructions because they vary by publication and understanding the requirements prior to download will minimize support requests and possible delays to accessing the content.
