Law School Exchange (LSE) is a new Web network that allows law faculty to share, digitally publish, and find teaching and scholarship materials from their peers, as well as from West and Foundation Press. LSE includes built-in connection and collaboration tools that allow easy and seamless connection with law faculty everywhere. Functionally, Exchange is a robust, fresh combination of other document exchange systems for teaching materials and popular networking systems for connecting law faculty.
How is this different from TWEN?
TWEN is a teaching platform or an extension of the physical classroom. LSE is a repository or library of materials for faculty to deliver through TWEN. LSE also connects faculty to other faculty in ways not possible through TWEN, which is designed primarily to connect faculty and their students. The two networks work together using the sameWestlaw password. While they are separate systems, LSE and TWEN were designed to work together. Think of TWEN as the iPod and LSE as iTunes. Or think of TWEN as the classroom and LSE as the library or bookstore.
