TBB-Online-Orange-Grey-LogoWe’re excited to announce the launch of TexasBarBooks Online in the fall of 2015! Our newest product will bring the full content of the Texas Family Law Practice Manual, with other titles to follow, into an easily accessible, subscription-based Web application.

You will have full access to the most authoritative family law material in Texas, in any browser and from any device, and you will have the opportunity to start working with our practice notes and downloadable MS Word forms with the convenience of a low monthly or annual subscription price. Of course, attorneys who prefer having a printed book and the accompanying digital product will still be able to purchase the printed seven-volume set.

TexasBarBooks Online includes the staple features of our existing digital products, such as links to statutes and cases through Casemaker, while also incorporating new interactive tools that will enhance your workflow.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about TexasBarBooks Online or are interested in being among the first to try TexasBarBooks Online before its official release. Beta testing is being rolled out this August!
