West and Foundation Press Casebooks

  • West Academic can provide online casebooks for ONLY those students who do not have access to a print version of their casebook. If you have a print version of your casebook available to you, then please do not proceed further.
  • You must first set up your account, which is the account you use for the West Online Study Aids. If you have not set up the account, then set it up here: https://eproducts.westacademic.com/
  • Once you have an account, then call (877) 888-1330, Ext. #4 to request a copy of the casebooks you need. 
  • NOTE: West Academic only provides casebooks it publishes--West and Foundation Press casebooks. If you are not sure whether your class text is a West casebook, please call or email a Reference Librarian to help you figure out who your casebook publisher is. Contact information for the Reference Librarians is on the left side panel of this page.
