Center for Advanced Legal Studies provides new textbooks to students at the beginning of each course term. Unless otherwise informed, CALS assumes all students will purchase textbooks through the school. CALS does not rent textbooks or buy back used textbooks. Students may purchase used textbooks identical to those used in the classroom if preferred. Also note, books and editions may be changed before the list is updated. Please contact CALS before purchasing your textbook to ensure it is the correct book for your scheduled class. Students are responsible for informing CALS of books purchased on their own prior to book shipment.

Loose leaf textbooks do not have standard binding. The content of the book is the same but often require the recipient to place the book into a 3 ring binder or loose leaf binder rings.

Certificate students beginning 11/18/2019 will receive e-books, which is included in the cost of the program. Students may rent the hard-bound book directly from Cengage using their own personal funds for $7.99/book.
