About the Professor:
Steve Emanuel’s life’s work has been to help law students become lawyers. While Steve was a first-year law student at Harvard Law School in 1974, he sat in his dorm room writing and publishing the first Emanuel Law Outline, in Civil Procedure. He gradually wrote and published additional titles in the Emanuel series, while making a brief detour to practice law in New York City for two years in the mid 1970s. Today, the Emanuel series is the best-selling line of law school study aids, with more than 65 titles. As part of Emanuel Publishing Corp. (“EPC”), of which Steve was president and owner, Steve acquired and/or started the CrunchTime, Law in a Flash, Siegel’s and Strategies & Tactics series, and has written or co-written most of the titles in these series. Nearly 2 million copies of study aids authored or co-authored by Steve have been sold. Steve sold EPC to Aspen Publishers in 2001, and continues to do all revisions on about 20 of the titles in the Emanuel Law Outline and CrunchTime series. Steve is a member of the New York and Connecticut bars (since 1977 and 2007 respectively). He has waited his entire career for the right time to enter the bar review business, and decided that that time was 2008, in conjunction with Aspen. Steve is a graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Law School.
