Casemaker Libra

  • Rulebook powered by Casemaker Libra

Digital Freedom

The Rulebook app gives you mobile access to state and federal court rules and other publications, such as The Bluebook®.  You can purchase these continuously updated books for the period specified (usually one year) on this site, before or after downloading the Rulebook app, and then the books will be available for download to your mobile device.  In addition, the Libra site can also be used to access your books if you prefer a traditional web site interface.  Formal citations to authority (statutes, cases, acts, etc.) are active links to Casemaker, where that document is provided free of charge.

You can learn more about Rulebook’s features by watching this 90-second video.  Rulebook is available for both iOS and Android devices (coming soon) in their respective app stores.  Below are some of the app's key features:

  • Downloaded rules are stored locally of your mobile device so you can work offline.
  • Search a specific rule, book, or your entire library by key words or phrases.
  • Touch any word to highlight, annotate, bookmark, copy, print, and/or email the selected text.
  • Highlights, annotations and bookmarks are synced to your other devices and your account on Libra.
  • Navigate from rule to rule easily by swiping the screen or jumping to the rule using the table of contents.
  • Keep multiple rules and authorities open at once and toggle easily back and forth between authorities with Rulebook's multitask function.
  • Double tap anywhere in the rule to see the rule's pin cite, immediately identifying what rule and subsection you are viewing.
  • Jump directly to cited sources through active hyperlinks.
  • Enjoy having all your content automatically kept up to date without losing all your highlights and annotations through Rulebook's update tool.

If you’re not a Casemaker user, you still get free access to whatever formal citations are linked in the Libra documents you lease.
