The education tech company adds eleven people to their Legal Education Board of Editorial Advisors

Education tech company Wolters Kluwer has released their appointments to its Legal Education Board of Editorial Advisors. While Wolters Kluwer has educational and research products and services for everything from health education to accounting and governance, this announcement is focused on the legal education branch of the company. They are also the creators of the Connected Casebook, a service that allows law students to essentially take their casebooks with them (digitally) and study and work at times convenient to them,

This board will help Wolters Kluwer provide experience and knowledge to their mission of helping law students achieve success. As expected, all the members picked for the board have experience and years of dedication to legal education, with two notables being Rachel E.
