Introduction to Law and Legal Reasoning

Introduction to Law and Legal Reasoning

Author: Jane Ginsburg Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/03/2021

This course book serves an undergraduate course in introduction to legal reasoning. It is designed to initiate students in the legal methods of case law analysis and statutory interpretation, prompting students to take a critical distance from the wielding of the methods. It helps students acquire or refine the techniques of close reading, analogizing, distinguishing, positing related fact patterns, and criticizing judicial and legislative exposition and logic.

Patt v. Donner

Patt v. Donner

Author: David Benjamin Oppenheimer, Molly Louise Leiwant, Sam A.B. Wheeler Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/03/2021

Contextualizing Civil Procedure It's the Civil Procedure Professors' classic lament - litigators who are former students are always telling us that NOW they see why civil procedure is so important, and that NOW they understand it. Our challenge is to make the course accessible to our students while they are enrolled, not just after they start practicing. The Patt v. Donner case file is intended to do just that - to help civil procedure students put the course in context as they study, by requiring them to follow, and help draft the pleadings, as a simulated case unfolds from the first day of the semester to the last. On day 1 students watch a ten-minute You Tube (TM) video of an initial client interview. Paula Patt, a newly arrived graduate student at UC Berkeley has been denied an apartment; she suspects it's because she's a single mother. Over the course of the semester students participate in drafting her complaint and seeking a TRO; switch sides to help complete motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim, lack of personal jurisdiction, and lack of subject matter jurisdiction; switch back to amend the complaint and move for discovery sanctions; oppose a motion to intervene, then move for-or oppose-summary judgment, and conclude the term with a settlement negotiation. Each pleading exercise provides the student with a largely completed pleading; all they need to do is draft a few key paragraphs. (We call this the 90% solution.) The exercises can be completed as homework or in class, as solo assignments or in teams, and with feedback from the instructor, teaching assistants, or through peer review.

Federal Rules of Evidence 2020-21 Statutory and Case Supplement to Fisher's Evidence

Federal Rules of Evidence 2020-21 Statutory and Case Supplement to Fisher's Evidence

Author: George Fisher Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/2020

This statutory and case supplement incorporates the latest statutory changes and proposed revisions and the most recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions bearing on evidence law. The statutory component incorporates a 2019 amendment of Rule 807, together with a new Advisory Committee Note. Also included is a proposed amendment of Rule 404(b)'s notice requirement, revised after public comments and on course to become law on December 1, 2020. The Advisory Committee's Note to the proposed change appears along with explanatory editor's notes. The statutory component presents a side-by-side reprinting of the older (pre-2011), unrestyled Federal Rules of Evidence and the newly restyled rules to allow for ready comparison. Editor's notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors' claimed intentions, worked substantive changes to the rules. The case supplement analyzes the Supreme Court's 2017 decision in Pena-Rodriguez v. Colorado, in which the Court ruled that the Sixth Amendment's guarantee of an impartial jury overcomes Rule 606(b) and its state-law analogues and permits defendants to present juror testimony about certain expressions of ethnic or racial bias in the jury room. The supplement addresses the Court's related 2014 ruling in Warger v. Shauers as well as its 2015 decision in Ohio v. Clark and 2013 ruling in Salinas v. Texas. Clark addressed whether the admission against the defendant of a young child's allegation of abuse, made out of court and offered in lieu of the child's testimony at trial, violated the defendant's confrontation right. And Salinas examined the prosecution's use in its case-in-chief of a suspect's silence in response to noncustodial police questioning. Throughout the supplement, those who teach with Fisher's Evidence (3d ed. 2013) will benefit from paginated cross-references between the casebook and the supplement.

Family Law Statutes

Author: Walter Wadlington, Raymond O'Brien, Robin Wilson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2017

In teaching and in practicing family law, the availability of pertinent codified material and recent commentary is indispensable. This compendium of statutory materials supplements the casebook by these same authors.

These four sections illustrate the evolving perspective of family law, nationally and internationally. Included are statutes addressing, among others topics, premarital and marital agreements, testimony by minors, professional responsibility standards, mediation and arbitration, proof of paternity and surrogacy, and international treaties to protect children and women. Each statute is preceded by citations to pertinent legal periodicals, providing explanation and parameters for practice. As a quick reference or to provide a survey of what has been legislated to address a particular situation, this compendium of codes and commentary is an indispensable complement to the classroom or to practice.

Law and Religion, Cases and Materials

Law and Religion, Cases and Materials

Author: Leslie Griffin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2017

The fourth edition was updated to include important new Supreme Court cases on governmental prayer, reproductive healthcare rights, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), and same-sex marriage. The fourth edition continues the book's interdisciplinary approach to law and religion, its student-friendly notes and questions, and its inclusion of numerous non-Supreme Court cases from a variety of state, federal, and international courts. The chapters were reorganized to highlight the impact of the Court's most recent cases on the subject matter of law and religion. The first six chapters provide the foundational information about free exercise, establishment, and RFRA: 1. Free Exercise of Religion identifies the ever-increasing diversity of American religion versus non-religion. It now includes United States v. Seeger, as a lead conscientious objection case explaining what the Court means by religion. ; 2. Introduction to Establishment now includes the Court's decision upholding government-sponsored prayer in Town of Greece v. Galloway, and asks if Galloway will change all future Establishment Clause analysis; 3. What is an Establishment of Religion? examines older establishment precedents about religious symbols and monuments, public funding of religion, and religious speech in light of Galloway. The chapter also focuses on the funding issue the Court will hear in the 2016 Term in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Pauley, which asks if state bans on church funding violate the federal Establishment Clause; 4: Constitutional and Statutory Protection of Free Exercise provides extensive coverage of the ramifications of the Court's RFRA decision, Hobby Lobby, which accommodated for-profit businesses from providing contraceptive benefits to their employees; 5: Conscience, Complicity, and Conscientious Objection relates Hobby Lobby to the Court's order searching a compromise between religious nonprofits and the government in Zubik v. Burwell. This chapter explores military, medical, and legal conscientious objection and analyzes the increasing number of complicity claims faced by courts hearing RFRA cases. It also includes the case of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples; 6: Conflicts between Individual and Institutional Religious Freedom explores the Court's increasing protection of institutional over individual religious freedom by looking at three topics: church property disputes, employment discrimination, and torts. The employment discrimination section now includes an overview of Title VII's religious discrimination provisions and the Court's recent decision interpreting them in EEOC v. Abercrombie and Fitch. The chapter also explores in detail the repercussions of Hosanna-Tabor v. EEOC, the ministerial-exception case that was brand new in the third edition. The first six chapters provided the basics about free exercise, establishment, and RFRA. Later chapters are more specialized and can be assigned at the professor's discretion, depending upon student interest. 7: RLUIPA: The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. RLUIPA now has its own chapter, which focuses on how the RFRA decisions studied in Chapters 4 and 5 will influence interpretation of RFRA's twin sister statute, which applies to institutionalized persons (prisoners) and land use; 8: Comparative Religious Freedom was completely revised. It now includes cases from other countries that parallel the subjects already studied in earlier chapters of the casebook. A section on religious garb, including a Turkish case about hijab bans, recalls Abercrombie. A section on blasphemy connects to the free (religious) speech jurisprudence. Conscience receives extensive treatment because it has become so important in U.S. law.

Legislation

Legislation

Author: Peter Strauss Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/07/2016

This book's focus makes statutes, and the processes that produce them, the primary consideration. Traditional teaching materials tend to make statutes and the circumstances of their creation secondary; students encounter the legislative process and legislative materials chiefly, sometimes exclusively, through the eyes of judges. In contrast, two of the three principal chapters of this book are organized around the enactment of two particular statutes - one late Nineteenth Century, the second late Twentieth Century. These chapters expose students to primary documents reflecting the quite different processes by which these two statutes were enacted, and invite them to reach conclusions about their meaning, in advance of any exposure to judicial interpretations - just as lawyers would typically be required to do in practice. The latter of these two chapters also includes extensive selections from the secondary literature to help put the current debates between textualists and purposivists in sharp focus. The intervening chapter deals in a more conventional way with the development and use of the purpose/intent-oriented methods of interpretation that characterized mid-Twentieth Century judicial practice. This chapter, in which judicial decisions predominate, often sets a statutory problem as a prologue to the case -- highlighting the statutory issue and inviting the student to do her own interpretive analysis before encountering the judges' opinion.

The Capability Problem in Contract Law

The Capability Problem in Contract Law

Author: Richard Danzig, Geoffrey Watson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/04/2008

After a quarter century in active use, this respected title has been revised and expanded in a collaboration between its original author, Professor Richard Danzig and Professor Geoffrey Watson of Catholic. The materials in this book are widely recognized as an invaluable complement to contracts casebooks. A mixture of essays, interviews, newspapers, and court records combines to take students behind appellate court opinions that are the staples of the first year law student's diet. By showing that facts are typically ambiguous and difficult to ascertain, that litigation narrows and thereby distorts experience, that race, class, gender, and quality of representation affect findings, that psychological variables often dominate practical, economic, and legal considerations, and that outcomes are often not what they seem, these materials raise fundamental questions about American law in general, and the law of contracts in particular. The Second Edition drops some material not now widely

Writing a Legal Memo

Writing a Legal Memo

Author: John Bronsteen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/02/2008

It walks the reader through each step of completing such an assignment, giving highly specific instructions and explanations. The book takes any mystery out of memo writing and can be used as a reference when the students become practicing lawyers. The book does what it teaches students to do in their writing, i.e. it makes it easy for the reader to understand and implement the author's suggestions.
