Critical Race Theory

Author: Dorothy Brown Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/10/2020

This law school casebook examines cases through the analytical framework of critical race theory. The third edition includes a new chapter on racial bias and the judiciary and a focus on fighting racism in the 21st century. There is a separate chapter on torts, contracts, criminal procedure, criminal law and sentencing, property, and civil procedure.

Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation

Author: Craig Roen, Sharon Reich Paulsen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/10/2020

Civil Litigation: Pretrial Case Development and Discovery introduces the art and practice of civil litigation. The book begins with a conceptual overview of the litigation process, then takes the reader through the initial client meeting, case planning and management, and the various forms of discovery. The focus is on how to litigate a case, from conducting pre-litigation investigations, to developing a theory of the case, to creating and executing a coherent discovery plan, as well as employing effective discovery techniques. The book contains real case examples that illustrate how effective litigators address the inevitable challenges litigation presents. It is appropriate for law students and new attorneys, and has all material needed for use in an experiential course on pretrial litigation. A companion online component contains exemplars of typical litigation documents, such as written discovery, deposition outlines, and motions to compel. There are two case problems for students to litigate a trade secrets dispute and a sexual harassment case, both of which have been vetted and used extensively at the University of Minnesota Law School. A teacher's manual is available.

The book quotes significant passages from laws, regulations, and listing standards-all integrated into explanatory text. And it includes summaries of finance and economics studies on governance issues appearing in journals published for those disciplines.

Exam Pro Workbook on Estates and Future Interests

Author: Raymond Coletta Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/10/2020

This title provides a basic introduction to estates and future interests law. Designed to offer solid knowledge of the area's central concepts, it guides readers through a series of increasingly complex conveyances. The workbook begins with an analysis of the fee simple estate and builds sequentially toward more complicated interests and conveyances. The information proceeds from the simple to more complex, later problems building on the successful command of earlier material. Each problem is followed not only by that problem's answer but also by a complete analysis of how the answer was derived. The workbook also contains an extensive glossary, summary charts, and a set of review problems that test the reader's developing mastery of the material.

Lawyers and Clients

Lawyers and Clients

Author: Stephen Ellmann, Robert Dinerstein, Isabelle Gunning Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/10/2020

Going beyond the basics of interviewing and counseling, this book examines practical and theoretical challenges lawyers face with clients. Each chapter explores a critical issue in interviewing and counseling, such as developing connection across difference; dealing with atypical clients; using engaged client-centered counseling; bringing narrative theory to bear on lawyer-client encounters; seeking truth; pursuing moral dialogue; discussing law; and understanding how expertise affects practice. The book investigates these issues primarily through detailed analysis of multi-layered lawyer-client conversations, arising in a variety of contexts, which invite the reader to consider and critique the lawyer's choices. A key theme is engaged client-centered lawyering, which emphasizes the importance of client choice and the impact of lawyers on clients, and affirms lawyers' ability, through attending to the evolving contexts of clients' lives, issues of technique, ethics, and la

Documents Supplement to International Intellectual Property, Problems, Cases and Materials

Rhetoric for Legal Writers

Rhetoric for Legal Writers

Author: Kristen Robbins-Tiscione Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/10/2020

This second edition reads like an entirely different book. Recognizing that theory informs practice, which informs theory, it relies on the core concepts of classical and contemporary rhetoric to enhance students' understanding of effective legal analysis and persuasion. Professor Tiscione has taken out much of the extraneous and somewhat daunting detail, retaining only that which is likely to be helpful to novice legal writers. The result is a far better balance between theory and practice in a more accessible text. Sections on law school, law as rhetoric, sources of law, binding and persuasive authority, legal research, types of reasoning, the writing process, conventional forms of predictive and persuasive writing, and oral speaking are divided into small, easy-to-assign chapters. Annotated sample documents are included throughout the book that relate to the same client issue introduced at the outset. No prior knowledge of rhetoric is necessary.

Introductory Accounting, Finance, and Auditing for Lawyers

Introductory Accounting, Finance, and Auditing for Lawyers

Author: Lawrence Cunningham Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/10/2020

This book, now in its seventh edition and adopted at 80 schools in its 20-year history, presents accounting, finance and auditing using clear narrative with extensive illustrations. Written by a leading scholar of law and accounting, it balances accessibility with rigor. Pedagogical features that make this book easy to use include a coherent layout, complete set of PowerPoint slides, comprehensive Problems and Solutions, intriguing Conceptual Questions and International Comparisons plus a Glossary, Bibliography, and Index. While introductory books on this topic include mostly venerable material not prone to change, where relevant change has occurred, this new edition is on the cutting edge with it, including capturing such hot topics as new auditor disclosure on critical audit matters (CAMs) and going concern warnings; the new audit report and auditor tenure disclosure; revenue recognition and lease accounting standards; and audit data analytics.

Criminal Law Case Studies

Criminal Law Case Studies

Author: Paul Robinson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/10/2020

This title makes complex criminal law issues more accessible to students by examining the facts of real-life case studies. The new edition continues the practice of adding additional cases, along with all accompanying material. Included in the text are details regarding the offender's background, the nature of the offense, all relevant facts of the case, photographs of the people and locations of the offense, and the texts of both then-governing and current statutes. This approach encourages analysis about what the law is and should be, and the aftermath of each case encourages discussion about what actually happened to the defendant and why.

Field Guide to Legal Research

Author: Paul D. Callister Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/10/2020

Criminal Procedure and the Constitution

Criminal Procedure and the Constitution

Author: Jerold H. Israel, Yale Kamisar, Wayne R. LaFave, Nancy J. King Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2020

This title is the work of nationally renowned experts on the subject of constitutional criminal procedure. It is ideally suited for a survey course designed to explore and critically examine how the U.S. Supreme Court has dealt with a wide range of highly controversial issues that arise at various stages of the criminal process. Considerable effort has been made to set forth the views of all members of the Court in landmark and important recent cases. The modest size of this volume has been attained not by collecting snippets of many opinions, but by the judicious selection of leading cases. An outstanding feature is the illuminating introductory commentary that appears throughout the book and place the selected cases in general historical and doctrinal perspective.

Freedom of Speech in the History of Ideas

Freedom of Speech in the History of Ideas

Author: Vincent Blasi Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2020

This special Concise Edition of the Ideas of the First Amendment casebook provides teaching materials that serve well in settings other than a 3 or 4 hour law school course on the First Amendment, which is what the casebook originally was designed for and continues to be used in. One such setting is a law school seminar on the freedom of speech that focuses on the most important recent cases. A second setting is an introductory undergraduate or journalism school course on the First Amendment. The First Amendment decisions of the Roberts Court represent an unusual teaching opportunity because so many of the majority opinions and the dissents they have provoked are driven by strong views, often brilliantly argued, regarding fundamental principles. For that reason, a basic familiarity with the history of ideas regarding the freedom of speech is an essential predicate for the study of recent developments. This casebook emphasizes both the classic writings on the subject and the richness of argumentation in the contemporary disputes, both of which engage at the level of fundamental principles. This emphasis combined with the book's manageable length makes it more suitable for law school seminars and courses in other departments than First Amendment casebooks that are designed for introductory law school courses.

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law

Author: Jesse H. Choper, Michael C. Dorf, Richard H. Fallon Jr., Frederick Schauer Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2020

An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law, this book is roughly half the length of many hardcover casebooks. The four renowned authors, now including Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, are co-editors of a long-time favorite teaching book, the much larger and newly revised Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 13th Edition. Leading Cases, which is a stripped-down version of that book, contains the essentials for teaching a basic course in constitutional law. Because the organization of the compact book parallels that of the much lengthier Choper - Dorf - Fallon - Schauer casebook, which contains extensive Notes & Questions, the latter can serve as a resource book for instructors teaching from the paperback. This edition of Leading Cases is up to date through the completion of the Supreme Court Term that ended in June 2020. Subsequent editions of Leading Cases will continue to be published every summer for classroom use in the fall and will include all the significant cases handed down during the most recent Supreme Court Term.

Incarceration and the Law

Author: Margo Schlanger, Sheila Bedi, David M. Shapiro, Lynn S. Branham Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/09/2020

In the age of American mass incarceration, a complex legal regime governs prison conditions and presents a host of controversial questions at the intersection of constitutional liberty, statutory interpretation, administrative regulation, and public policy.

Global Energy Justice

Author: Lakshman D. Guruswamy Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

The second segment explores energy poverty among the other third of the world, consisting of 1.3 to 2.5 billion peoples. It explains how the lack of access to basic clean and affordable energy results in the premature deaths of millions, primarily among women and children, and afflicts millions more through sickness and ill health. The third and fourth segments elucidate the importance of energy justice, within the internationally accepted foundational legal norm of sustainable development. Finally, the book concludes with examples of national model laws, and explores how they offer blueprints for promoting global energy justice.

Legal Writing

Legal Writing

Author: Diana Pratt Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This book is a legal writing text for first-year law students that provides a systematic approach to learning legal analysis, organization, writing, and advocacy. Each step in the process is introduced separately so students can concentrate on mastering each skill before attacking another one. Although the text was originally developed for a four-credit course, the process approach works well in courses with varying number of credits and styles of instruction. The text begins with an introduction that answers many of the basic questions law students have at the outset but are afraid to ask. It examines the sources of the law, the precedent system, the court system, basic civil procedure and its terminology, the anatomy of a case, and the anatomy of a statute. The principle topics covered in the text include: legal analysis, legal organization techniques, writing the basic legal memorandum, upgrading to a more complicated office memorandum, constructing a trial level brief, appellate advocacy, and oral advocacy. The text focuses on teaching students to write in plain English that highlights, rather than obscures, the analysis.

Statutory Interpretation

Statutory Interpretation

Author: Hillel Levin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This book is for instructors of Statutory Interpretation and related courses who want to introduce practical lawyering skills into the doctrinal curriculum. It is also comparatively inexpensive for students. Much like any law school case book, Statutory Interpretation: A Practical Lawyering Course covers the leading cases; but it also offers much more. For example, it includes: legislative negotiation and drafting exercises to give students practical experience and a deeper understanding of the complexities of the legislative process; lawyers' briefs and case documents to help students understand how cases and arguments are put together; case files and brief-writing exercises to teach students to craft arguments based on their doctrinal studies; problems that require students to problem-solve, prompting them to think strategically; a mix of heavily-edited, lightly-edited, and unedited cases to help students prepare to work issues and questions for students to focus on as they read cases and other materials. Finally, the author provides an extensive teachers' manual offering step-by-step guidance for how to best make use of the book's innovative materials.

European Union Business Law

European Union Business Law

Author: Lloyd Bonfield Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

Despite the machinations accompanying the British decision to leave the European Union, the EU still remains a potent economic and political force on the international stage. American businesses, and their lawyers, cannot afford to ignore its institutions and law, because the Union is America's largest trading partner. While the book places the Union in its historical and jurisprudential context and parses its institutional and constitutional structure, its focus is squarely upon the exposition of business law. It introduces American law students and lawyers to substantive law of the Union focusing upon free movement (of goods, workers, the self-employed, cross-border service providers, business entities, and capital), competition law, merger control, state subsidies, and cross-border investment regulation. Although the presentation excerpts seminal cases in each area of business law, its format does not resemble the traditional law school casebook. The objective is upon exposition and explanation, with the authors (academics and practitioners) offering synthesis, analysis and context in each substantive area of law under observation.

Lawyering and Ethics for the Business Attorney

Lawyering and Ethics for the Business Attorney

Author: Marc Steinberg Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

Legal counsel for both privately and publicly-held enterprises are at the forefront of law compliance and adherence to ethical norms. With the continual presence of government as well as private litigation against business enterprises and their attorneys, preventative lawyering consistent with ethical standards remains a key objective that should be prioritized in the law school curriculum. This coursebook, consisting of twelve separate scenarios, uses the problem method in combination with case law and subject matter analysis to make a meaningful contribution to the law school curriculum. Scenarios include dilemmas focusing on client identification, attorney conflicts of interest, counseling the small business enterprise, client fraud, the business attorney as litigator, and the role of inside counsel. Less than 200 pages, the text comfortably fits as a supplement for the business associations and professional responsibility courses. The author, one of this country's most prolific scholars, also has extensive practical experience, including being retained as an expert witness in several high profile cases, including Enron, Mark Cuban, and Martha Stewart. The text also has an accompanying teacher's manual that focuses on the subject matter and Scenarios presented in the book.

Introduction to the Study of U.S. Law

Introduction to the Study of U.S. Law

Author: Robert Klonoff Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This book is designed to introduce students to the highlights of the first-year curriculum at a U.S. law school. The first chapter provides an overview of the U.S. legal system. The seven chapters that follow focus on basic foundational subjects: constitutional law, civil procedure, contracts, torts, property, criminal procedure, and criminal law, each in a separate chapter. Although the first chapter consists entirely of articles and other commentary, the other seven chapters consist mainly of edited court decisions. All of the chapters contain notes and questions, highlighting important issues for discussion and providing citations to cases, articles, and other materials for more in-depth study. First, it is designed for international students who are attending a U.S. law school to pursue an LL.M degree or an S.J.D. degree. This book gives such students the opportunity to take an intensive course on U.S. law, thus enabling them to learn the fundamental concepts before taking upper-division courses. Second, this book is designed for international students who want to learn about U.S. law but who are not planning to attend a U.S. law school. U.S. law professors can teach the course in foreign law schools using this text. Also, foreign professors who have been trained at a U.S. law school can teach U.S. law at their home institutions. Third, the book is designed for undergraduate students who are considering law school or who otherwise want to learn basic legal concepts. Such a course could be taught by U.S. law professors at their undergraduate institutions. All such students share a common desire to learn the basics of U.S. law in one course. And will benefit not only from the substantive materials but also from the experience of learning core subject areas.

Business Fundamentals

Business Fundamentals

Author: Dwight Drake Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This short book is designed to enhance the business training of law students. It focuses on select foundational topics that often fall outside the scope of a traditional business organizations course. The premise of the book is that these topics can enrich such a course by expanding its relevance, broadening the business literacy of students, and complementing the entity and doctrinal concepts covered in the course. Care has been taken to be concise, avoid nonessential complexities, use illustrative examples, and incorporate problems that test student comprehension. The emphasis is on real-world relevance and promoting awareness and a basic understanding in six areas: important business differences, classifications and characterizations; core accounting concepts and financial statement basics; key quantitative concepts often associated with financial literacy; business funding challenges; rudimentary tax concepts of business entities; and 16 important business factors presented in a choice-of-entity planning context. The book includes 18 mini-case-study problems that enable students to analyze and apply the substance of what they are reading to specific fact situations.

Basic Document Supplement to International Law and World Order

Basic Document Supplement to International Law and World Order

Author: Burns Weston, Richard Falk, Hilary Charlesworth Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This text serves as a supplement to Weston, Falk, Charlesworth and Strauss's International Law and World Order, 4th Edition, which is truly international in its scope, making it as readily usable abroad as it is in the United States. The majority of material is organized around the conceptually divisible components of our otherwise indivisible world order: war/peace, human rights/social justice, economic trade/development, and earth/space environment. The remainder, the constitutive/organic and the miscellaneous, reflect the truism that no typology, no matter how well conceived, can ever fully comprehend the diversity of human affairs.

Regulation of Cryptotransactions

Regulation of Cryptotransactions

Author: Carol Goforth Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2020

The materials in this book are designed to look at cryptoassets and the expanding world of cryptotransactions to examine how the regulatory regime surrounding these interests is developing. Because the regulatory reaction to crypto is still in the early stages, it is not really possible to create a traditional casebook that focuses only on settled judicial opinions to illustrate relevant legal issues and rules. These materials therefore look at various statutes, rules, and regulatory structures that predate the advent of crypto along with mission and informational statements promulgated by the agencies most closely involved with regulation of cryptotransactions.

California Criminal Law

California Criminal Law

Author: John E.B. Myers Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2019

California Criminal Law, 3rd Ed. is a comprehensive casebook on California criminal law. This casebook is for professors who emphasise case analysis and black letter law over legal theory. Thus, the book is practical and practice-focused. The book includes many cases to help first year students master the art of case briefing. As well, the book has many problems that challenge students to apply the law. The problems are well suited for class discussion. Most students appreciate the focus on California law. The book prepares students for internships in DA and PD offices. The book is designed to prepare students for criminal law questions on the bar exam. Although the emphasis is California law, the book prepares students for the multistate bar examination by covering the principles of criminal law tested on the multistate exam. Thus, the book prepares students for the bar in other states. Because California is not a Model Penal Code state, and because the MPC is not tested on the bar, the book places less emphasis than many casebooks on the MPC. For a number of topics, the book compares the MPC approach to California law.

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law, A Compact Casebook for a Short Course, 2019

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law, A Compact Casebook for a Short Course, 2019

Author: Jesse H. Choper, Richard H., Jr. Fallon, Michael C. Dorf, Frederick Schauer Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2019

An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law, this book is roughly half the length of many hardcover casebooks. The four renowned authors, now including Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, are co-editors of a long-time favorite teaching book, the much larger and newly revised Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 13th Edition. Leading Cases, which is a stripped-down version of that book, contains the essentials for teaching a basic course in constitutional law. Because the organization of the compact book parallels that of the much lengthier Choper - Dorf - Fallon - Schauer casebook, which contains extensive Notes & Questions, the latter can serve as a resource book for instructors teaching from the paperback. This edition of Leading Cases is up to date through the completion of the Supreme Court Term that ended in June 2019. Subsequent editions of Leading Cases will continue to be published every summer for classroom use in the fall and will include all the significant cases handed down during the most recent Supreme Court Term.

Investigative Criminal Procedure

Investigative Criminal Procedure

Author: Sam Kamin, Ricardo J. Bascuas Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2019

Kamin and Bascuas' Investigative Criminal Procedure, 3d provides an up-to-date, historically grounded understanding of the pre-trial rights guaranteed by the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments. Rather than focusing on the holdings of individual cases, it focuses on broader concepts and themes. Carefully edited majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions convey the development of constitutional criminal procedure law, exposing the way arguments ebb and flow over time and across various doctrines. The Supreme Court's classic and recent cases are reproduced and organized around a politically agnostic conceptual approach, allowing students to grasp the competing theories and concepts underlying searches and seizures, interrogations, and the exclusionary rules. Points for Discussion following each case focus students on the areas of disagreement among the justices, facilitating class preparation. Our goal is to get the students to think critically about why the law is the way it is, what alternatives are possible, and what theories and values underlie the Court's doctrine. Unlike textbooks that proceed from a particular ideological viewpoint, this book proceeds by defining, through the study of cases, the key constitutional terms pertaining to criminal procedure - for example, search, seizure, probable cause, custody, interrogation, and prosecution - and then examining how the Supreme Court's understanding of those concepts has changed over time. The book endeavors to give equal attention to all the justices' competing jurisprudential views and invites students to draw their own conclusions as to which more faithfully accords with the nation's founding principles. The overriding objective is to encourage critical thought by requiring students to read the cases closely, to distinguish between adjudication and exercises of raw power, and ultimately to assess the validity of legal doctrines in light of history, logic, and precedent.

Criminal Procedure and the Constitution, Leading Supreme Court Cases and Introductory Text, 2019

Author: Jerold H. Israel, Yale Kamisar, Wayne R. LaFave, Nancy J. King Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/2019

This title is the work of nationally renowned experts on the subject of constitutional criminal procedure. It is ideally suited for a survey course designed to explore and critically examine how the U.S. Supreme Court has dealt with a wide range of highly controversial issues that arise at various stages of the criminal process. Considerable effort has been made to set forth the views of all members of the Court in landmark and important recent cases. The modest size of this volume has been attained not by collecting snippets of many opinions, but by the judicious selection of leading cases. An outstanding feature is the illuminating introductory commentary that appears throughout the book and place the selected cases in general historical and doctrinal perspective.

The First Amendment

The First Amendment

Author: Jesse H. Choper, Frederick Schauer Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/08/2019

This widely adopted soft cover casebook, adapted from Choper, Dorf, Fallon, and Schauer's Constitutional Law but with numerous additional references and comments, is designed for a two- or three-unit course in the First Amendment. The new Seventh Edition has been thoroughly revised, tightened, and updated. The authors present the materials in a way that permits instructors to depart from the organization of the casebook with relative ease. The authors also expose students to original perspectives or perspectives they might otherwise miss. Notes and questions enable students to study the variety of competing views embodying the First Amendment as they emerge from concrete cases rather than imposing an abstract characterization and classification on the student at the outset of the study. And the extensive references help students to situate the cases within larger academic and theoretical debates. The new edition of the casebook contains a revised organization of the basic freedom of speech materials on content regulation, forum analysis, and the coverage/scope of the First Amendment, and further includes hundreds of new cases and references. There has been substantial editing to make way for the new material, and thus the book remains of appropriate size for either a two- or three-unit course. The new speech cases cover issues involving the types of content regulation (Reed v. Town of Gilbert), government speech (Walker v. Texas Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans), racist speech (Matal v. Tam), commercial speech (Expressions Hair Design v. Schneiderman), compelled expression (Janus v. AFSCME and National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra), and government motive (Heffernan v. City of Paterson). On freedom of religion, the 7th edition adds extensive coverage of the new cases involving argued hostility to particular religions or religious beliefs (Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission and Trump v. Hawaii) while also providing materials to facilitate discussion and analysis of questions regarding claimed exemptions from laws of general application.

Cyberlaw

Cyberlaw

Author: Patricia Bellia, Paul Berman, Brett Frischmann, David Post Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/04/2018

This law school casebook starts from the premise that cyberlaw is not simply a set of legal rules governing online interaction, but a lens through which to re-examine general problems of policy, jurisprudence, and culture. The book goes beyond simply plugging Internet-related cases into a series of doctrinal categories, instead emphasizing conceptual issues that extend across the spectrum of cyberspace legal dilemmas. While the book addresses all of the traditional subject matter areas of cyberlaw, it asks readers to consider both how traditional legal doctrines can be applied to cyberspace conduct, and how the special problems encountered in that application can teach us something about those traditional legal doctrines. The fifth edition has been updated, shortened, and reconceptualized to make the book even more effective as a teaching tool and to illuminate new debates at the heart of this evolving field. The book groups the material into units addressing the who, how, and what of governance/regulation-fundamental questions that pertain to any legal system, in cyberspace or elsewhere. The fifth edition also includes updated treatment throughout, as well as a more stream-lined approach that should make an already effective casebook even more unified and teachable.

Public Corruption and the Law

Author: David Hoffman, Juliet Sorensen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/2016

From traditional crimes of corruption such as bribery and embezzlement to corrupt forms of governance such as patronage and nepotism, corruption is a global phenomenon, but one that defies simple definition.

These questions and more are answered in Public Corruption and the Law: Cases and Materials. This casebook includes not only significant and illustrative appellate opinions, but also other writings on policy and contemporary debates about reform. While the primary focus is on U.S. law, significant attention is also given to public corruption in an international context.

Author: Jesse H. Choper, Richard H., Jr. Fallon, Yale Kamisar, Steven H. Shiffrin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2016

An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law, this book is roughly half the length of many hardcover casebooks.

Leading Cases, which is a stripped-down version of that book, contains the essentials for teaching a basic course in constitutional law.

Effective Legal Writing

Effective Legal Writing

Author: Douglas Abrams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/04/2016

The English language knows only two types of writing-good writing and bad writing. Good legal writing is good writing about a legal subject. From this core proposition, this compact book provides researching and writing lessons for 1L's, upper class law students, and practicing lawyers. Leading judges, lawyers, and literary figures help deliver many of the lessons. An early chapter covers the foundations of good legal writing, beginning with avid reading, maintaining personal and professional commitment to the client's interests, and learning the right to a reader. Also covered are such foundations as identifying the audience, scheduling, outlining, orienting readers, maintaining civility and professionalism, and adhering to bias-free writing. Later chapters concern researching, writing, editing, and dismantling barriers to effective written expression. Topics include the consequences of inadequate research; the four fundamentals of good legal writing (conciseness, precision, simplicity, and clarity); and reason and passion in persuasive writing. Chapters on editing and proofreading stress the writer's need to restrain pride of authorship that would stiffen resistance to constructive pre-publication input. Chapters treat three major barriers; misused jargon, acronyms, and footnotes. Chapters on Versatility describe how lawyers, if their personal and professional circumstances permit, can fulfill professional responsibility and achieve personal satisfaction by writing in such diverse forums as newspaper editorial pages, law reviews, bar association journals, and blogs.

Secured Transactions

Secured Transactions

Author: Paul Barron, Mark Wessman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/01/2016

The core of this law school text is an extensive series of hypothetical problems designed to force students to grapple with the provisions of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code directly, rather than relying on judicial interpretations in cases. It begins by asking students to assume the role of a junior in-house counsel just hired by a mythical bank holding company. The book then takes the students through a series of problems generated by the various lending subsidiaries of that holding company. The tone is light, with recurring characters and business entities. Extensive footnotes refer to the statutory provisions of Article 9 (as well as related provisions of the Bankruptcy Code) necessary to solve the problems and refer, in addition, to relevant cases and secondary sources that can be used as supplemental material. A comprehensive Teacher's Manual - longer than the book itself - is available on line, along with a set of PowerPoint slides for in-class use. This book is intended for teachers who want an in-depth treatment of Article 9, believe Article 9 need not be drudgery either for students or instructors, and have a sense of humor. The underlying pedagogical assumptions and methods of the first two editions of the book have been retained. While there have been minor revisions to a few problems, the principal additions to the text itself include streamlined statutory citations to reflect the widespread enactment of the 2010 amendments to Article 9, numerous citations to cases (mostly decided since the 2nd edition of the book), and a revised set of PowerPoint slides setting forth the timelines for the bulk of the problems relating to attachment, perfection, and priority. The additional cases in the revised footnotes (including the recent Motors Liquidation bombshells from the Second Circuit and Supreme Court of Delaware) are discussed in an expanded Teacher's Manual. The additional material should either help students solve the problems or expand their understanding of the concepts covered.

Forms Manual to Cases and Materials on Oil and Gas Law

Author: John Lowe, Owen Anderson, Ernest Smith, David Pierce Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2015

The principal function of this forms manual is to illustrate the exceptional importance of specific language to all contract-based transactions.

Additionally, differences in state law, regional custom, the identity and interests of the client, and the peculiarities of the specific transaction require a lawyer to choose carefully which form to use as the basis of the transaction. For this reason, there are often included several forms for the same transaction.

Choice of Law

Choice of Law

Author: Aaron Twerski, Neil Cohen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/12/2014

This book is designed for a two-credit course dealing exclusively with choice of law. The text runs approximately 300 pages and is designed to give students an appreciation of the many methods that courts use to decide choice of law cases. With all the competing curricular demands on students, altogether too many students are not willing to commit three credits to a course in Conflict of Laws. Yet, a two-credit course is sufficient to examine the core of conflict of laws - choice of law - and the availability of such a course can enable students to learn this increasingly important area. Furthermore, many schools offer intersession and summer courses that would allow students to take a two-credit course in choice of law. In addition to presenting a set of materials tailored for a shorter course, this book corrects the failure of most conflict of laws casebooks to give students an up-to-date picture of current issues in choice of law. The extant casebooks rely heavily on the older classic cases about conflicts that are of little practical importance today and do not expose the student to the diversity of important current conflicts that courts or legislatures must resolve. This book, while often using classic cases to set the stage, primarily uses modern cases and statutes to both illustrate the contexts in which conflict of laws issues arise today and present the most current methods of resolving them.

A History of the American Constitution

A History of the American Constitution

Author: Daniel Farber, Suzanna Sherry Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/10/2013

The newly published third edition brings the material up-to-date with both the latest historical scholarship and the most recent Supreme Court decisions using historical analysis. Among both judges and academics, one of the hottest issues in constitutional law is the role of original intent. Almost everyone agrees that it is important, and some scholars and judges believe it should be the most important factor in constitutional law. To think about these issues intelligently, law students need to have ready access to the historical materials so they can see how the Framers of the Constitution thought about critical issues. Yet the original source materials fill many volumes. Writings by historians also fill many bookshelves. Just as the traditional casebook selects and condenses materials from the court reports to make them useful for law students, this book does the same thing for the historical evidence of original intent. There is no other source that covers this range of materials, combined with concise overviews of the best understanding of the historical context. Only this book gives students a cogent introduction to the history behind the Constitution and its major amendments, so they can form their own judgments about the original understanding and its relevance to modern constitutional law.
