Law Street Media and Wolters Kluwer Legal Education Announce E-Learning Content Partnership
Law Street Media, LLC
NEW YORK CITY & WASHINGTON D.C., November 30, 2016 – Law Street Media, the leading law and policy website for Millennials, announced today a content distribution partnership with the Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. Legal Education unit (Wolters Kluwer Legal Education), a leading creator of teaching and learning materials for law schools.
The partnership brings together two early movers in the expansion and reimagining of the legal education content marketplace, connecting Wolters Kluwer Legal Education, one of the largest, longest-serving and best known providers in legal education, with Law Street Media, one of the newest and fastest-moving content creators in this area.
The collaboration is anticipated to greatly increase cross-platform access to a wealth of synergistic content crucial to law students and young legal professionals. Law Street Media will provide Casebook Connect – Wolters Kluwer Legal Education’s market-leading digital-learning suite – with real-time news and reports catered to the needs and interests of Millennials across a variety of key subject areas, including: high-profile cases; updates from the United States Supreme Court; crime; international law; and legal technology.
In addition, Law Street Media will distribute Wolters Kluwer Legal Education’s market-leading study aids and online legal education materials for students, including the Aspen Student Treatise Series, Casenote Legal Briefs, and the Emanuel Law Outlines.
“Law Street Media is proud to join with Wolters Kluwer Legal Education in expanding opportunities for law students,” said John A. Jenkins, Founder and CEO of Law Street Media. “This partnership gives law students immediate access to the most relevant content in each of their study areas, written and curated by Law Street Media’s team of writers and editors. We are excited to bring our resources to an audience that will benefit extensively from them.”
“Most law faculty believe that law students are better equipped to master complex legal concepts when they are able to connect academic materials with real-world applications,” said Vikram Savkar, General Manager of Wolters Kluwer Legal Education. “While we are already regularly incorporating practical examples alongside cases and legislation in the newest editions of our textbooks, legal developments move faster than textbook revision cycles. With that in mind, we are delighted to be working with Law Street Media to extend our ability to meet the market’s needs. Our partnership to distribute current, insightful, and topical news content through the Casebook Connect learning platform is a valuable step in ensuring that law students can stay fully abreast of their chosen fields of study.”
