NEW YORK–LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire –LexisNexis, the leading provider of client development solutions for the legal profession, today announced that its highly regarded Martindale-Hubbell® Law Digest is available on Amazon.com® on a “Print on Demand” basis that allows anyone to purchase as many or as few copies as they like.
The Martindale-Hubbell Law Digest provides concise and convenient summaries of a vast body of statutory law from all over the world. There are 148 state- or country-specific digests, compiled and updated each year by prominent law firms and legal scholars in each jurisdiction.
Anyone who wishes to purchase one or more copies of the Law Digest can go to www.amazon.com/lawdigest and order any digest they want for a suggested MSRP of $24.95 per copy. All orders will be printed and fulfilled from Amazon’s print-on-demand facilities and available for Amazon Prime, next-day and free Super Saver Shipping.
“This is an important strategic alliance because it allows anyone – lawyers, law firms, corporate counsel, researchers and even consumers — to inexpensively purchase individual copies of the Martindale-Hubbell Law Digest and enhance their knowledge of current statutory law in select states or specific areas of practice,” said Joseph Douress, senior vice president of client development services for LexisNexis. “As a result of this new Print on Demand offering, we will eliminate the old two-volume print versions of the Law Digest beginning with our 2007 edition, but we will continue to offer our CD-ROM version, which was extremely well-received by our customers when it was introduced last year.”
“Amazon.com customers can now purchase the pieces of the Law Digest that are most relevant to them and have them delivered the next day at a very affordable price,” said Kurt Beidler, senior manager of business development at Amazon.com. “The Law Digest project showcases how publishers can leverage our print-on-demand capabilities, large distribution network and global audience of more than 60 million active customers to reduce costs and increase sales. Publishers can now disaggregate and re-release content in new formats targeted at specific market segments without being constrained by traditional print economics.”
