Free Federal Rules of Procedure and Evidence eBooks


CALI and the Legal Information Institute join forces to provide free ebooks of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and the Federal Rules of Evidence.


The 2013 Editions (effective December 1, 2012) as well as the 2012 and 2011 editions can be found on the eLangdell Bookstore.

Their Federal Rules ebooks include:

The complete rules as of December 1, 2012 (for the 2013 edition).
All notes of the Advisory Committee following each rule.
Internal links to rules referenced within the rules.
External links to the LII website’s version of the US Code.

These rules are absolutely free for you to download, copy and use however you want.  Please feel free to add them to your catalog or store a copy in your institutional repositories. However, they aren’t free to make.  If you’d like to donate some money to LII instead of paying money to commercial publishers, they’ve set up a donation page. A little money donated to LII goes a long way towards making the law free and accessible to all.” [Link to the CALI/LII federal rules website.]
