Types of Publications
Designed to be treatises on their topics, Minnesota CLE’s Deskbooks offer
comprehensive instruction written and edited by the very best practitioners in
their fields. Detailed narratives are punctuated by practice tips and ethical
commentary; the compilations are indexed by subject and authorities. Having much
longer shelf-lives than course materials, Deskbooks are updated regularly via
replacement pages or behind the chapter supplements. They thus combine long-term
wisdom and everyday relevancy, embodying everything you need to conduct practice
from start to finish. Additionally, many Minnesota CLE’s Deskbooks are available
in LinkedLaw. LinkedLaw Deskbooks are available, through a
subscription, 24/7 online, via your computer or mobile device. In addition to
being fully searchable, LinkedLaw books are linked to primary authorities
mentioned in the text. Summon the texts of statutes, rules, and cases with
simple mouse clicks. Navigate through the book quickly and easily using the
table of contents to jump directly to corresponding pages within the book. And,
with a LinkedLaw Deskbook subscription you will always have the most
current version of the Deskbook at your fingertips. All updates and new editions
published during the subscription period are incorporated automatically and
seamlessly into the LinkedLaw Deskbook, becoming instantly available to
the user at no extra cost.
InFORMed Annotated Legal Documents
InFORMed annotated legal documents are expertly drafted legal forms and
documents containing annotations and helpful commentary by expert attorneys.

downloading the documents and fine-tuning them to suit your needs. Documents are

developments while delving deeper where necessary.
