A Leader in Legal Education: Carolina Academic Press

Ever wonder what lawyers read for fun?

Maybe something like Richard C. Wydick’s Plain English for Lawyers, a “helpful reference now in its fifth edition and touted by The New York Times as ‘. . . probably the most popular legal text today. . . .’”

Over the course of thirty-five years, Carolina Academic Press (CAP), based in Durham, has published this title and more than 600 others. Although recognized worldwide for their contributions to law canon, they also publish texts about subjects such as Africana Studies, Logic and Mathematics, Sociology and Religion, and much more.

We at Carolina Academic Press are proud of our hard-earned reputation as a publisher that puts emphasis on author satisfaction above other considerations. We strive to maintain this reputation by constantly seeking efficiencies in our production schedules, by knowing and aggressively marketing to our core consumers, by producing high-quality finished products, and by dependably attending to the needs of each individual author.

Forthcoming titles include Falolaism: The Epistemologies and Methodologies of Africana Knowledge by Abdul Karim Bangura; The Maintenance of Life: Preventing Social Death through Euthanasia Talk and End-of-Life Care—Lessons from The Netherlands (Second Edition) by Frances Norwood; and Restorative Justice: Integrating Theory, Research and Practice by Aida Y. Hass-Wisecup and Caryn E. Saxon.

CAP recently purchased the law school education titles from LexisNexis® Matthew Bender. In an open letter to their authors and friends, CAP described how this purchase helped solidify “CAP’s role as a leading legal education publisher and strengthens (their) already strong and diversified list.” For the full letter, click here.
