Accounting for Lawyers, 4th

Primary Author(s): Barrett, Matthew J. & Herwitz, David Richard


This casebook identifies and emphasizes accounting topics and issues most likely to confront lawyers in the 21st century. It offers an effective teaching tool, using financial statements from Starbucks Coffee Company, Amazon.com, and Google Inc. to illustrate various concepts, and including comprehensive problems in every chapter. Although primarily designed for the law student with no accounting background, this edition includes sufficient material to enable students with previous accounting experience to appreciate how accounting issues interact with legal issues.

An Integrated Approach to Constitutional Law, 2d

Primary Author(s): Caplan, Aaron H.


This groundbreaking casebook is ideal for introductory Constitutional Law courses of 3–5 units that teach both structure and rights. Its novel approach presents constitutional law as a coherent system, not as isolated doctrines in silos. The book integrates subjects ordinarily taught in Con Law I and II; it integrates historical and doctrinal approaches; it integrates features of a casebook and a study guide; and it presents each case as an integrated whole, so that students learn relationships among doctrines while studying the details of each. Its tone is accessible, while its structure allows for sophisticated classroom discussion. A detailed teacher's manual and companion web site offer charts, slides, graphics, and additional source materials, significantly enhancing accessibility for first-time adopters.

Business Associations: Agency, Partnerships and Corporations, 10th

Primary Author(s): Bainbridge, Stephen M.


With the prior edition of this concise, up-to-date casebook having been adopted at over 100 law schools, the tenth edition preserves the authors' tradition of providing a comprehensive overview of agency, partnership, and corporation law. An exhaustive teachers’ manual extensively discusses every case and provides answers to every question in the text. One feature that many adopters find especially helpful is that all three editors give their own approach to the cases, showing the different ways in which the same case can be taught. Annually updated PowerPoint slides cover almost all sections of the book and feature an extensive use of data, graphics, and photos.

Energy, Economics and the Environment, 4th

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


The Fourth Edition of Energy, Economics and the Environment focuses on the unifying characteristics of energy law, while also emphasizing its connections to environmental and economic issues affecting energy industries. The casebook covers the full range of energy resources, as well as an in-depth examination of issues related to electric power.

Like previous editions, this casebook is intended to be used in an Energy Law survey course, but the materials in the book are rich enough that they can also be adapted to a course or seminar covering renewable energy, oil & gas, electricity regulation, or advanced topics in environmental law. Previous editions of the casebook have been used in law school classrooms for nearly two decades. The new edition of the casebook provides a pedagogical window that can readily be adapted to a variety of courses and teaching styles as issues in energy continue to change. Materials in the casebook include extended problems, case studies, and other practice-oriented materials to allow students to learn important concepts in a practical context.

Environmental Law and Policy, 3rd

Primary Author(s): Revesz, Richard L.


This casebook emphasizes environmental policy, as well as the structure and details of the federal environmental statutes. It focuses students’ attention on how tradeoffs between environmental goals and social goals are resolved in different and difficult contexts. The book pays close attention to the political context in which regulation takes place, looking at the impact of federal government, interest groups, and administrative agencies in the regulatory process. It examines current efforts to address climate change and regulate greenhouse gases through existing statutory frameworks. The casebook includes substantial introductions and extensive notes and questions to guide classroom discussion. The book has been updated primarily to underscore the importance of the regulation of greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.

Primary Author(s): Areen, Judith C.


The concise edition continues the long tradition of innovation for which this casebook is widely known and prized.

Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Selected Other Procedural Provisions, 2018 Edition

Primary Author(s): Clermont, Kevin M.


Updated to include the latest amendments, this statutory supplement provides the clearest and most useful collection of statutes and rules for courses in civil procedure-even including a sample set of local rules. The Supplement's unique organizational structure presents much information, but manages to do so without sacrificing a clean and usable presentation of the rules. A clever system of annotation succinctly explains amendments, and a separate presentation of the advisory committee notes now grouped by rule allows inclusion of red-lined versions of the rules, thus making the notes easy to understand and enabling reconstruction of the versions formerly in effect. This presentation reflects the fact that advisory committee notes are as important to a theoretical study of civil procedure as to a doctrinal or practical approach.

Financial Regulation: Law and Policy. 2d

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


The textbook takes as its starting point today's financial sector, which has been reshaped by the Financial Crisis and the still ongoing fundamental reforms to financial regulation that followed. History, technological change, turf battles, politics, ideology, and other factors are brought to bear so that students may understand why and how markets and regulation have evolved and will continue to evolve. The book provides students with the situational awareness they will need to be outstanding lawyers, regulators, and policy-makers.

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


The 12th edition of this comprehensive casebook draws both from its history and current debates to create a lively and rich set of materials appropriate for introductory as well as advanced courses.

International Criminal Law and Its Enforcement, Cases and Materials, 2nd

Primary Author(s): Van Schaack, Beth & Slye, Ronald C.


This casebook draws from the jurisprudence of the various international and hybrid criminal tribunals (in The Hague, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, East Timor, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Baghdad, and Cambodia), United Nations bodies (such as the Human Rights Committee), regional human rights institutions, formal domestic courts, alternative or traditional courts (such as the gacaca proceedings in Rwanda), and transitional justice institutions (such as truth commissions). It also draws upon domestic and international jurisprudence involving civil, as opposed to criminal, liability to the extent that such cases are predicated upon tort analogs of international crimes and forms of responsibility such as complicity and command responsibility.

Law and Religion, Cases and Materials, 4th

Primary Author(s): Griffin, Leslie C.


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.

Legal Methods: Understanding and Using Cases and Statutes, 3rd

Primary Author(s): Strauss, Peter L.


This text focuses on the skills beginning law students need for using cases, statutes, and secondary materials in their education. It follows the development across time of American legal doctrines about product liability and workplace injury, case law and statutory, and of the institutions that created those doctrines, judicial and legislative. Along the way, students encounter not only the appellate opinions typical of law school teaching materials, but also lawyers' arguments and briefs, considerable stretches of legislative history materials, and a good deal of secondary literature bearing on the continuing controversies over statutory interpretation.

» Casebook Website: www.Strauss-LegalMethods.com




Legal Research and Writing, 2nd

Primary Author(s): Murray, Michael D. & DeSanctis, Christy H.


The book covers objective writing, legal research, and adversarial writing using a process-based approach. It provides multiple annotated writing samples, many of which are based on a common hypothetical.

Natural Resources Law and Policy, 3rd

Primary Author(s): Rasband, James R. & Salzman, James


This law school casebook helps instruct students on natural resources law. It is also intended to show students the challenges of managing natural resources policy. Starting with the theories behind the law, the book examines all aspects of resource disputes, including economic, scientific, political, and ethical considerations. It explores the challenges presented by common pool resources, scientific uncertainty, mismatched scale, market failures, and institutional adequacy. It also considers resource law and management of both public lands and private property.

Patt v. Donner: A Simulated Casefile for Learning Civil Procedure

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


Our simulated casefile is intended 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 fourteen-minute You Tube™ video of an initial client interview. Paula Patt, a newly arrived graduate student in anthropology 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 and lack of personal jurisdiction; switch back to amend the complaint, move for a protective order, and oppose a motion to intervene filed by the local fair housing group; and conclude the term with jury voir dire and, in the final week, participation in a settlement negotiation.

Practicing Bioethics Law

Primary Author(s): Griffin, Leslie C.


Practicing Bioethics Law provides basic readings in the field of bioethics law, including court cases, statutes, administrative regulations, briefs, and law review and other academic articles. The text presents theoretical debates about the latest bioethical subjects as well as practice-based materials that expose students to a wide range of possible bioethics-related careers. The book's companion website provides practice documents, videos, pictures, scientific materials and other information that is too complex to include in a traditional casebook. The authors combined the book and the website so readers could learn more about the practice of bioethics law at the same time they are beginning to understand the theory and content of bioethics law.

Practicing Environmental Law

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


Practicing Environmental Law brings the excitement of environmental law practice into the classroom. The book covers the traditional subject matter of an environmental law course, but in a new way. Each chapter includes multiple case study-style problems, which confront students with an environmental problem and a range of supporting materials. As students work through the book, they will develop an environmental justice advocacy strategy, decide whether to bring novel Clean Air Act litigation to address climate change, consider whether fireworks displays are point sources of water pollution, assess whether the Army Corps of Engineers must prepare an environmental impact statement for a new utility line, negotiate an enforcement settlement, and negotiate the contents of a landscape-scale habitat conservation plan—among many other exercises. They also will review, and use, affidavits, administrative orders and guidance documents, biological opinions, white papers, letters, and other document types, in addition to many statutory and regulatory excerpts and court cases. In short, they will simulate the work that environmental attorneys actually do.

Securities Regulation: Cases and Analysis, 4th

Primary Author(s): Choi, Steven J. & Pritchard, A.C.


This casebook offers a clear and concise introduction to the economics and regulation of securities markets, with a single-minded focus on disclosure and the economics of disclosure. It is concise, easy to read, and student friendly.
The chapters are organized around motivating hypotheticals which illustrate the various issues relating to each chapter’s topic. These hypotheticals make it easier for the students to follow the material. In addition, they are a useful teaching device allowing students to grapple with issues that they are likely to face as corporate lawyers. The supporting materials for the book also provide role-playing and prospectus-drafting exercises to involve students in learning tedious securities materials (i.e., prospectuses).
This casebook attempts to make securities regulation easy to teach and understand. It is shorter and more comprehensible than other casebooks. It is focused on the important principles students will need to understand to be effective corporate lawyers. The book avoids policy debates and instead focuses on understanding the rules as they are. It contains tables and charts to organize complicated material, along with a comprehensive set of PowerPoint slides for presenting the material.

The Constitution of the United States, 3d

Primary Author(s): Paulsen, Michael Stokes & Calabresi, Steven G.


This casebook emphasizes the text, structure, and history of the Constitution. It uses "great cases" for learning the major issues in constitutional law, and it gives less attention to small ripples of contemporary doctrine. It emphasizes the task of interpretation, including many examples of the interpretation of the Constitution by the political branches. And it includes features of our constitutional history that are neglected in many casebooks, such as slavery, the amendment process, and the early history of the freedom of speech. The third edition has many refinements. It also has more coverage of executive discretion, the taxing and spending powers, the Necessary and Proper Clause, incorporation, and the drafting of the Fourteenth Amendment. It is now suitable not only for a survey course, but also for a course focused on federalism, on the First Amendment, or on the Fourteenth Amendment.

The Law of Democracy: Legal Structure of the Political Process, 5th

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


This book created the field of the law of democracy, offering a systematic account of the legal construction of American democracy. This edition is the most significant revision in a decade. With the addition of Nathaniel Persily, the book now turns to a changed legal environment following such blockbuster Supreme Court decisions as Citizens United and Shelby County. This edition streamlines the coverage of the Voting Rights Act, expands the scope of coverage of campaign finance and political corruption issues, and turns to the new dispute over voter access to the ballot. The basic structure of the book continues to follow the historical development of the individual right to vote; current struggles over gerrymandering; the relationship of the state to political parties; the constitutional and policy issues surrounding campaign-finance reform; and the tension between majority rule and fair representation of minorities in democratic bodies.
