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

Primary Author(s): Caplan, Aaron H.


This groundbreaking casebook is ideal for one-semester 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 offers charts, graphics, and additional source materials, significantly enhancing accessibility for first-time adopters.

Civil Procedure, 3rd

Primary Author(s): Rowe, Jr., Thomas D.


This book eases the dilemma faced by professors choosing a civil procedure book by structuring the material so that it can be taught quickly but at a high level. The cases and notes are short but intellectually challenging. Most of the book can be covered in as few as four credit hours, but the materials are rich enough to expand discussion to six hours.

Constitutional Criminal Procedure, 5th

Primary Author(s): Taslitz, Andrew E. & Paris, Margaret


This casebook offers instructors maximum pedagogical freedom to craft an exciting course using seminal U.S. Supreme Court cases, legal scholarship, social science research, interdisciplinary essays, and over 175 illuminating problems. Building on the strengths of the earlier editions, the Fifth Edition features relevant excerpts of law review articles, as well as significant media reports (which includes insights from respected legal experts and other commentary), noteworthy state and lower federal court decisions, emergent social science research, illustrative web links, and multiple, hypothetical problem-solving opportunities throughout a text that maintains its relevance and user-friendly structure for new and old adopters alike.

Cox and Box's Labor Law: Cases and Materials, 16th

Primary Author(s): Bok, Derek C. & Cox, Archibald


The Sixteenth Edition makes a number of significant changes to its predecessor, reflecting the evolution of the law relating to employers, employees, and unions in a dynamic economy. This edition includes new decisions of the National Labor Relations Board appointed by President Obama, which has departed in important ways from the approach of the Board under the prior administration. Moreover, the Board is now actively confronting the role of labor law in the contemporary workplace, addressing emergent issues such as protections for employee electronic communications and social media interactions, accountability for employers in "fissured" enterprises, and potential limitations on other employer restrictions on collective activity. The book also contains judicial decisions addressing these developments as well as reactions in Congress and elsewhere, evincing the growing polarization over the role of labor unions in society.

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.

» Casebook Website: www.ReveszEnvironmentalLaw.com




Estates and Trusts, Cases and Materials, 4th

Primary Author(s): Sterk, Stewart E. & Leslie, Melanie B.


This book is designed entirely for teaching and learning. We have assembled questions, problems, and notes to focus student attention on critical issues. We have tried to be crisp, and to present material in ways that will keep students awake and engaged. Our teachers' manual, in addition to providing the usual case summaries and answers to casebook questions, offers concrete suggestions about how to teach each chapter, complete with suggested discussion questions for those who might find them useful. Professors may access and download the Teachers' Manual from this site after registering.

Any course book dominated by appellate cases - including this one - permits and encourages teachers and students to explore the niceties of legal doctrine from the perspective of policy makers and litigators. Most estate lawyers, however, are not litigators; they are office lawyers who focus on drafting and planning to avoid litigation. We have designed this book to integrate drafting and planning issues with discussions of doctrine and policy. Many of the notes, questions and problems ask students what they would do, as drafters and planners, to avoid the litigation that resulted from the planning and drafting decisions made by the lawyers in the principal cases in this book.

Evidence, 12th

Primary Author(s): Park, Roger C. & Friedman, Richard D.


The new 12th edition presents two new and important Supreme Court cases concerning the right to confrontation. Incorporating the restyled Federal Rules of Evidence, the book introduces a revised organization of the materials on hearsay, to reflect recent developments on the confrontation right. The chapter on the best evidence rule has been extensively updated and numerous changes bring other chapters up to date. Oversized cases have been edited, older materials having a tired feel are dropped, but teaching favorites that have stood the test of time are retained. An updated Teacher's Manual will also be available.

Family Law, 6th

Primary Author(s): Areen, Judith C.


The concise edition continues the long tradition of innovation for which this casebook is widely known and prized. This new-style edition delivers an up-to-date overview of U.S. family law that weaves together a thoughtfully edited blend of black-letter rules, policy, narrative, history, and transnational sources, with theory judiciously sprinkled throughout. The resulting mix is a casebook that introduces the full range of family law topics in a manner that is direct, unadorned, accessible, and distinctively teachable. This edition is ideal for instructing students on major highways of the field, with materials that capture and convey their dynamism, interest, and future directions.

Federal Administrative Law, Cases and Materials, 2d

Primary Author(s): Hickman, Kristin E. & Pierce Jr., Richard J.


This casebook is designed with an emphasis on accessibility, includes many discussion problems and questions focusing on real-world application, and gives students a solid grounding in the basic principles of administrative law that they might come across in regulatory practice. While it pays due attention to the historical evolution of the doctrine in certain areas, this casebook focuses more heavily on current standards. Administrative law as a subject matter encompasses some very interesting theoretical discussions. Rather than remain strictly theoretical to the point of bordering on encyclopedic, this book tends toward the more practical, while still including enough reference to theory to enable a professor who wants to introduce more theoretical discussion into the classroom to do so.

» Casebook Website: www.HickmanPierce.com




Federal Public Land And Resources Law, 7th

Primary Author(s): Fischman, Robert L.

Financial Regulation: Law and Policy

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors

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.

Gellhorn and Byse's Administrative Law, Cases and Comments, 11th

Primary Author(s): Multiple Authors


This authoritative casebook presents a comprehensive treatment of the doctrinal basis of administrative law that students need to know to practice competently and also a substantial development of the scholarly literature that has, from many perspectives, critiqued the existing law. The 11th edition continues the tradition of offering instructors a rich theoretical, historical and political context for the cases. At the same time, recognizing changing pedagogical demand, the book offers a leaner presentation of many topics and more cues for helping students navigate the book.

» Casebook Website: www.GellhornByseAdminLaw.com




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.

» Casebook Website: www.VanSchaackSlye-ICL.com




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.

Legal Research and Writing, 2nd

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.

Privacy and Data Protection Law

Primary Author(s): McGeveran, William


Privacy and Data Protection Law introduces a dynamic and rapidly growing field of law that is also fun to teach. Beyond traditional topics like torts or the Fourth Amendment, its coverage extends to statutory and regulatory regimes such as FTC enforcement, medical privacy, and the Patriot Act. It devotes significant attention to global privacy law and to data security. By mixing conventional case excerpts with regulatory materials, case studies, and hypothetical problems, Privacy and Data Protection Law prepares students for the real-world legal challenges of managing personal information in any type of organization—an increasing need of every client.

Property: Principles and Policies, 2nd

Primary Author(s): Merrill, Thomas W. & Smith, Henry


This casebook is designed for a "building block" property course, which serves as a foundation for a student's remaining years in law school and beyond. It presents the subject through vivid cases, including most of those beloved by generations of property teachers.
The book organizes the material in an integrated way, starting with the idea of property as the right to exclude and systematically developing elaborations, exceptions, and counterfoils to this idea. Issues of contemporary relevance, such as intellectual property and regulatory takings, are given relatively pervasive and expansive treatment. The emphasis throughout is on fundamental principles and policy questions.

Racial Justice and Law, Cases and Materials

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.

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 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.
