I suppose every law professor, at one time or another, has mused about writing a casebook. "This one I'm using is OK, but...." I have written several casebooks in two different areas of law and for two different publishers. I have also written another law school book for a third publisher. Along the way, I have learned a thing or two. If you are thinking seriously about writing a casebook, you might find these tips useful. In this Article, I will discuss my theory for writing a casebook, how to organize the book and select cases, and how to get your book published.
