Tort Law and Alternatives

Marc A. Franklin

This leading casebook covers all major aspects of tort law with expertly edited cases and original text. The principal focus of this book is the law of negligence, strict liability, and no-fault legislation as alternative approaches to compensating the victims of accidental harm and creating optimal incentives for safety. The chapter on intentional torts has been restructured to facilitate its use to start off the course for those instructors desiring to do so. The book also includes comprehensive chapters on products liability, damages and insurance, defamation, privacy, economic torts, and a revamped and updated chapter on alternatives to tort law, including the "tort reforms" of the past half century. Notes and questions following principal cases are designed to supplement students' knowledge about the subject matter of the case and related areas as well as to encourage them to think critically about judicial opinions and tort policy. This Eleventh Edition reflects evolving developments in recent case law and legislative activity, as well as materials and commentary ranging from the soon-to-be completed Third Restatement project on Intentional Torts to continuing tort issues arising from the Internet to important civil justice issues of the day.

Public Health Law, Ethics, and Policy

Richard J. Bonnie

This pioneering book offers the most comprehensive and teachable compilation of materials on public health law now available. The updated 2nd edition provides significant new materials on the unprecedented challenges for courts and government policymakers presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Its unique perspective highlights the evolving legal, political and social responses to the current infectious disease outbreak—in the context of earlier court cases and policies dating back to cholera in the 1900s through SARS and Ebola in this century.The 2nd edition also features the emergence of health equity as a key public health perspective, as increasingly detailed data document the differential impact of upstream social and environmental determinants on the health of the public and on the health of particular populations. Other updates focus on "system-approaches" to complex health problems, such as opioid misuse and obesity, that require data, engagement and coordination across numerous government entities.One of the challenges of teaching public health law is that it touches many other government sectors and bodies of law. This book solves that problem by organizing and integrating the material to address (1) cross-cutting themes in public health policy, such as government authority and justification to restrict individual liberties or use emergency powers and (2) the primary policy tools used by public health policymakers and practitioners, from behavioral interventions such as immunization and quarantine to environmental regulations. The book aims to explore topics from different points of view, weaving together public health sciences, ethics, law, and public policy.In perhaps their most exciting innovation, Bonnie, Bernheim and Matthews have constructed an intriguing and diverse menu of teachable units focused on specific policy problems or case studies in public health action. The book weaves together pertinent medical information and public health statistics, court decisions and other legal materials, and ethics commentaries. It uses both judicial opinions and concrete problems in public health policy and practice as the main vehicles for classroom discussion. Examples include leading a community response to COVID-19 that addresses health disparities, differential social and economic need, vaccine allocation and resistance; and preparing public health testimony for a state legislature on immunization requirements or exemptions. Other case studies include substandard housing as a determinant of health, and the upstream effects of climate change on the health of children. Students are also exposed to a variety of cross-cutting regulatory frameworks, including product safety, environmental protection, and data privacy.This book is richly interdisciplinary. Although designed for students of law, the book can easily be adapted to courses designed for students in public health, public policy and interprofessional settings examining the role of law and public policy in advancing population health and health equity.

Negotiation and Lawyers

Art Hinshaw

Negotiation and Lawyers takes the latest scholarly thinking in negotiation and applies it to the various tasks that negotiators do in a way that negotiation practitioners will appreciate. Written in 2020, the book is responsive to the increased role technology plays in the negotiation process due to the recent pandemic and provides important insights into the impact of racial inequity and implicit bias in negotiation.Negotiation and Lawyers presents the core concepts, skills, and strategies for lawyers to succeed in the art of negotiation. We believe that anyone can improve their negotiating skills by utilizing research and psychology to inform a more intentional and strategic approach, which is what this book does—tailors negotiation theory to negotiation practice. To do this, the authors move away from the prevailing method of teaching negotiation styles; they present negotiation as a process where two fundamental tasks are taking place: the creation and claiming of value. Negotiators tend to think one task is more important than the other, and this book supports both schools of thought. No matter where one stands on this issue, improving one's ability as a negotiator requires practice in skills such as listening, framing, and perspective-taking as well as understanding how to effectively prepare for negotiation in order to make more strategic, intentional, and ethical decisions. Furthermore, negotiators must acknowledge the impact of human factors in the process—emotions, cognitive biases, identity, perceptions, racial inequity, and implicit bias along with the non-human factors such as how to negotiate using various modes of technology.This book presents these topics in a succinct manner and is ideal for 2-3 credit courses or shorter, intensive programs including negotiation training programs. At just under 200 pages, readers can easily absorb the core concepts while also having plenty of opportunity for deeper exploration through unique call-out boxes interspersed throughout the text as well as the traditional reflection questions in most textbooks.

Financial Regulation

Michael S. Barr

The Third Edition of Financial Regulation: Law and Policy continues to offer students and faculty an innovative and accessible introduction to the field. Financial regulation has long been at the intersection of technological innovation, market forces, and the political economy, punctuated from time to time by financial and economic crises. Since the turn of the millennium, we have seen these pressures intensify and multiply. We have lived through the most systemic Financial Crisis in 70 years, a major shift in regulatory design, the digital transformation of the economy, including the financial sector, and a worldwide Pandemic with still uncertain economic impact, playing out against an increasingly divided and shifting political landscape. The Third Edition has been updated to keep pace with all of these changes. You will find extensive discussions of fintech, climate change, and racial equality across the Third Edition, as these topics move from the periphery to the center of the regulatory agenda. The Third Edition also adds a stand-alone Chapter on supervision, an important topic that we expect will be receiving more academic research and attention, as well as an expanded Chapter on enforcement.Like the Second Edition, the Third Edition analyzes and compares the market and regulatory architecture of the entire U.S. financial sector, from banks, insurance companies, and broker-dealers, to asset managers, fintech companies of many types, complex financial conglomerates, and government-sponsored enterprises. The Third Edition explores a range of financial activities, including consumer finance and investment, digital and traditional payment systems, securitization, short-term wholesale funding, money markets, and derivatives. Throughout the book, the authors note the cross-border implications of U.S. rules, and compare, where appropriate, the U.S. financial regulatory framework and policy choices to those in other places around the globe, especially the UK and the European Union.

Effective Legal Writing

Douglas E. Abrams

"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 lessons ideal for 1L Legal Research and Writing courses, upper class writing courses, and lawyers who wish to continue professional development. Leading judges and lawyers deliver many of the lessons.An early chapter covers the foundations of good legal writing, beginning with avid reading as well as professional commitment to the client's interests. Also covered are such foundations as identifying the intended audience, scheduling, outlining, orienting readers, and maintaining civility and professionalism.Later chapters concern researching, writing, editing, and dismantling barriers to effective writing. Topics include the consequences of inadequate research; the four fundamentals of good legal writing (conciseness, precision, simplicity, and clarity); and the roles of 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 also 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.
