Going forward, Wolters Kluwer customers will be able to access NITA's titles in digital and print formats, including practice-oriented resources, case files, problem sets and other materials for law school classroom use. Wolters Kluwer will be responsible for everything from design and production to manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, as well as sales and marketing activities, while NITA will maintain responsibility for author management and editorial development.
"The legal and publishing spaces have experienced tremendous change over the past 10 years, with contraction in some areas and expansion into others," said Wendy McCormack, Executive Director of NITA. "Wolters Kluwer's Legal Education group and NITA have both continued to evolve by moving steadily in the direction of growth, and I’m delighted that this partnership offers us, in perfect complement of our respective strengths and expertise, the chance for us to grow together."
