End Production and Distribution of OLE softback Manuals

DOJ's Office of Legal Education produces very authoritative and helpful manuals in a variety of subject matter areas for prosecutors/trial attorneys. They then update, produce and mail thousands of these books every year to prosecutors across the country who don't even read them because a lot of material is online in USABOOK and other online DOJ resources. These books particularly helpful pre-trial/investigation stage and hence there is no real need to carry them to court. Therefore, if you stop producing and mailing them (perhaps 1 set could be sent to the library in each office), this would save MILLIONS annually.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
