What instructors say about us

Ziyad Motala

Ziyad Motala

Professor of Law at Howard University School of Law

LiveCarta is an innovative, cost effective and quick way to produce a case book. It offers both an online and a well bound, well printed, glossy physical copy option. The staff are efficient, helpful and very responsive throughout the production process. There is no other option that offers such a quick turnaround time. What is particularly unique is the option to easily make revisions for subsequent editions.

Spears-Gilbert Associate Professor of Law, UK Rosenberg College of Law

Open-access publishing is the future of legal pedagogy, and LiveCarta is on the cutting edge. I deeply appreciate their work formatting, distributing, and promoting the open-access professional responsibility casebook I co-authored. Our goal was to make free teaching materials available to as many people as possible, and LiveCarta helped make it happen.

James E. Simon

Distinguished Professor, Department of Plant Biology

I found LiveCarta to be amazing educational platform. Both using it as a remote teaching platform and/or as a supplement to in person class lectures, LiveCarta provided me with the needed flexibility and ease of posting, revising and updating; and even more important the students with the needed ease of taking notes and adding their own comments and questions to all posted information. The students loved the system. I will be converting all my class materials onto LiveCarta.

Taft Stettinius & Hollister Professor of Law, University of Minnesota Law School

LiveCarta has enabled me to publish a casebook that is easily accessible to students at low or no cost to them.  I can make revisions whenever new developments come along to keep the material current.  I think this is the way to go with casebook publishing!
