"It is an offence to knowingly procure, sell, distribute, duplicate, transpose or receive any course material such as examinations, tests, quizzes, assignments, or laboratory results from any source without the proper written consent except where licensing agreements permit otherwise." --- Does sending course mateiral to someone via email violate this law?

Sounds like this doesn't pertain to your textbook at all if that's what you mean. If someone needs an assignment or test or whatever, they should be going to the professor.

Against your academic conduct policy? Maybe....

As the others have said... It depends by what you mean by "course material". And it wouldn't be illegal. Just an academic offense. Which could get you booted from your school, and make it difficult to transfer anywhere else.
