Evidence in a Nutshell

Paul F. Rothstein

The latest version of the Federal Rules is the anchor of this book, with some state variations noted where important. The text summarizes significant U.S. Supreme Court decisions, including the latest Confrontation Clause cases; additional leading cases; forefront expert, scientific, and electronic evidence developments; and principal schools of evidentiary thought. Includes practical implementation as well as scholarly approaches. It pays attention to the litigation process as a whole and includes interdisciplinary cross-pollination where helpful. Numerous signpost-type headings and subheadings light the way, concisely summarizing the gist of each evidentiary concept. The detailed table of contents alone could serve as a complete course outline. Distinctively, an analytical, thoughtful approach is emphasized throughout.

Cases and Materials on Insurance Law

Leo P. Martinez

This Ninth Edition contains extensive updates, with new cases relevant for students anxious to acquire practical knowledge that can be quickly put to use when they enter the profession. To use one example, Chapter 5, that deals with liability insurance, adds substantial new text on the duty to defend, including the Texas Supreme Court's 2020 decision in Richards v. State Farm Lloyds. Chapter 5 also augments its coverage of multi-insurer allocation of liability with the addition of the California Supreme Court's 2020 decision in Montrose Chemical Corp. of California v. Superior Court. Chapter 5 also has numerous new notes on almost every aspect of liability insurance. In addition to new cases, the Ninth Edition has been edited to add notes dealing with a variety of cutting-edge issues. This edition also incorporates numerous references to the American Law Institute's Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance. References to the Restatement are not confined to Chapter 5 inasmuch as the Restatement addresses a few subjects that lie beyond the confines of pure liability insurance issues. In short, the Ninth Edition brings students and instructors up to date.

Complex Litigation

Richard L. Marcus

Since 1985, this casebook has been the staple of Complex Litigation courses. It covers a wide variety of cases – civil rights, mass torts, securities, consumer rights – and provides a strong foundation for classroom coverage regarding any type of complex litigation. The new 7th edition retains the book's familiar broad coverage and basic format while adding coverage of important recent developments. In particular, the new edition has a full chapter devoted to Mutidistrict Litigation, which is increasingly prominent, and new cases interpreting the 2018 Rule 23 amendments. In addition, it includes new cases dealing with contemporary problems in e-discovery as well as the growing use of plaintiff fact sheets in MDL mass tort proceedings. The new edition also introduces a new co-author – Prof. Andrew Bradt of UC Berkeley, a leading scholar on MDL issues. The final chapter on arbitration has been reoriented to focus on ways in which arbitration clauses may keep some complex litigation – particularly class litigation – out of court.

A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 2021-2022

Steven F. Baicker-McKee

Receive complimentary lifetime digital access to the eBook with new print purchase.What Makes A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Different?Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: The 2021-2022 edition supplies what your students need—the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2020, with the organizational deposition revisions in Rule 30(b)(6)), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code (as amended through February 1, 2021), and the text of the U.S. Constitution. Most Rules Supplements available to students contain that same content. But where most supplements stop, A Student's Guide continues on….PLUS… Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: What many students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure—and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid—is an understanding of how each Rule "fits" into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally. This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance. Three features follow the text of each Rule:"How This Rule Fits In" explains for students the broad context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice;"The Architecture of this Rule" guides students in unpacking the structure of those Rules that are especially long and confusing;"How This Rule Works in Practice" helps students understand each Rule's application, subpart by subpart, in the real-world, practical life of practicing attorneys.PLUS… Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this resource into a "finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules.PLUS… A "Getting Started" Overview to Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts.PLUS… A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes a concise, student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice.PLUS… A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.

The Constitution of the United States

Michael Stokes Paulsen

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 fourth edition has many refinements. It also has new cases on (among other topics) the non-delegation doctrine, legislative investigations, presidential removal, compelled speech, and the free exercise of religion, and new old cases on Article III and on the commerce power. There are also new executive and legislative materials on various topics, including impeachment and the drafting of the Bill of Rights.

A Short & Happy Guide to the Rule

Donald H. Gjerdingen

Most students view the Rule against Perpetuities as the most difficult rule in law school. Moreover, the Rule is still covered on MBE for Property and MEE for Wills and Trusts and yet few student-centered resources exist. The Little Book on Perpetuities fills this gap. An ideal subject for self-study, this guide covers all key parts of the Rule, including problems for self-testing. It presents the Rule in its historical context but in a fun, engaging, and accessible way that is simple and clear for students to use. It can be used for Property classes, as well as Wills & Trusts and can supplement a casebook or be used as a separate, self-continued unit. Coverage includes: the common-law Rule and all the famous classics traps; modern statutory reforms, including the new generations-based rule by the Restatement Third of Property; recent efforts by some states to abolish the Rule; and the history and policies of the Rule.

Law in the United States

The third edition of Law in the United States introduces students to the unique American mix of common law, statutory materials, and constitutional law. Strongly emphasizing American legal methods and American legal history and culture, the book provides a rich array of teaching resources covering both public and private law.The broader themes discussed in the eighteen chapters of this casebook include the nature and sources of American law, the division of government power and the protection of human rights under the U.S. Constitution, litigation in a federal framework, and the American enterprise system, with a focus on torts, contracts, corporations and eminent domain.This book lends itself to being used for various target audiences.

The book is also highly suitable for pre-law programs at the college level as well as law school seminars.

Conflict of Laws

Peter Hay

The authors of the sixteenth edition are proud of the book's heritage, which dates to 1936. At the same time, they are mindful of the needs of students and professors addressing the Conflict of Laws eight decades later. We continue to add the subtitle "Private International Law" to acknowledge the more common title of the subject outside the U.S., as well as to alert students that they will face a blend of domestic and international issues once they become lawyers. As an intellectual matter, the conflicts course presents rich and nuanced doctrine. As a professional matter, every litigator will face issues raised in this course. As a practical matter, an increasing number of students are drawn to the course because it is tested on the bar exam in every state that has adopted the universal bar exam or the multistate essay exam. The authors recognize the need, therefore, to provide appropriate review of civil procedure to allow the student to transition to the study of conflicts.A modern conflicts casebook must be flexible. Some professors will choose to cover a great deal of international and comparative law. Others, however, will prefer to address conflicts only in the domestic sphere. This edition fully supports either (or some middle) approach. The professor may comfortably choose how much international and comparative material to cover without losing transition or context.Some highlights of the sixteenth edition:Chapter 2, concerning domicile, remains succinct, intended to drive home the significance of domicile and the complementary concept of habitual residence, including a new note on domicile and devolution of real property. Notes have been added on the notion of derivative domicile and occasional confusion in statutes referring to "residence" rather than "domicile."Chapter 3, concerning personal jurisdiction, has been honed in response to recent doctrinal shifts. The Supreme Court's contraction of general jurisdiction has led to an increasing focus on the "relatedness" aspect of specific jurisdiction. The Chapter reflects this trend. One subsection traces the development of doctrine from 1980-2014, with World-Wide Volkswagen, Burger King, and Asahi as note cases setting up J. McIntyre as the principal case. The next subsection traces the retraction of general jurisdiction, with notes on Perkins and Goodyear setting up Daimler as the principal case. The next subsection emphasizes the emergent importance in specific jurisdiction of being able to show that the plaintiff's claim relates sufficiently to the defendant's contact. Bristol-Myers Squibb is one principal case, followed by the state case Moki-Mac, which is a wonderful vehicle for addressing whether the relatedness inquiry requires consideration of causation and, if so, what sort of causation is relevant. The latter point sets up Supreme Court decisions in the Ford Motor Company cases, which were handed down as the book went to press and are addressed in an Update Memorandum.Chapter 4 pulls together everything that bears on limiting a court's exercise of jurisdiction that it otherwise has. This includes forum selection agreements in interstate and international transactions, antisuit injunctions, dismissals (or denials of motions to dismiss) in cases of parallel litigation (lis pendens) or on the ground of forum non conveniens, and federal transfer.Chapter 5 treats a number of questions often not addressed in depth in the first-year procedure course. For instance: what is a "judgment" for purposes of recognition – administrative decrees, equity decrees, modifiable support orders? How conclusive is a judgment on a second court – comparing res judicata (Treinies) in the interstate setting with the 2010 SPEECH Act requiring review of foreign country awards for libel? Does public policy play a different role in the case of foreign than in interstate judgments? Can non-parties benefit or be bound: what about "virtual representation" or non-mutual collateral estoppel? What are the mechanisms for the recognition and enforcement of domestic and of foreign-country judgments in the United States?Chapter 6, concerning the impact of the Constitution, has been streamlined to enhance teachability.Chapters 7 and 8 present the central themes of choice of law. Chapter 7 deals with many of the classical puzzles of choice of law such as the public policy reservation and renvoi.Chapter 8 was considerably revised in the fifteenth edition to show the progression from the traditional system, to the height of the conflicts revolution, to a developing consensus to consolidate modern analysis in a manner that provides more predictability and certainty. This edition shortens Chapter 8 somewhat to place more emphasis on the most modern developments and discusses important provisions of the draft Third Restatement. Chapter 8 is also divided into several subsections, allowing the teacher freedom to omit portions of it if desired.Chapter 9 addresses conflicts problems in the domestic and international settings. In keeping with the overall theme of flexibility, the professor may assign specific sections to engage a greater or lesser degree of review of Erie as well as a greater or lesser degree of international coverage.Chapters 10 through 13 cover particular subjects such a property, family law, and corporate law for professors who desire to go into these subjects in more depth. Recent changes in the law particularly affect Chapter 11 on Family Law. That chapter first briefly explores the place of celebration rule (also with respect to religious marriages), treats same-sex marriages and registered unions in the light of Obergefell with particular reference to property and inheritance interests, updates the material on divorce (including religious divorces), expands the treatment of child custody and of interstate and international child abduction, and updates the enforcement of maintenance obligations under interstate uniform law and the Hague Convention in international cases.Finally, a Documentary Appendix provides the principal legislative acts of the European Union with respect to jurisdiction in civil, divorce, and custody matters as well as with respect to choice of law in contract, tort, and divorce, in each case with extensive textual commentary. Textual material briefly addresses the effect of "Brexit" on EU – UK relations in these matters and summarizes other EU texts, such as the succession regulation. Notes in the main text refer to these materials, allowing an instructor to teach the material comparatively or to focus only on American law. The European materials also all lend themselves for use in a seminar.

Contract and Related Obligation

Robert S. Summers

This casebook focuses on the rules and principles of contract law, as well as the lawyer's role in planning and drafting contracts. Chapter One traces a contract case from the agreement stage, to a breakdown in the parties' relationship, to a lawsuit, to a decision in the trial court, and finally to the appellate court's opinion. It includes supporting material, including the parties' agreement, a correspondence from the lawyer to the client, the complaint, a motion to dismiss, the answer, the trial judge's charge to the jury, the special verdict form, the trial judge's decision on motions after the verdict, and the appellate court opinion. These materials help students understand where cases come from and lawyers' various roles, including planning, negotiating, counseling, drafting, as well as litigating. Following the introduction, this casebook presents extensive material on the theory and practice of transactional planning and drafting, as well as additional materials from lawyers involved in the cases.The Eighth Edition offers comprehensive coverage of contract law theories of obligation, including bargain, promissory estoppel, unjust enrichment, and tort arising in the contract setting. This edition includes new cases and secondary sources on developing issues of contract law. In particular, the casebook introduces several new readings on electronic contracts, algorithmic contracting, and the relationship of contracting to public health. Many of the secondary readings have been condensed and summarized, and the overall book has been streamlined. The casebook retains its strength in traditional subjects such as good faith, parol evidence, gap filling, conditional obligation, and breach, but the Eighth Edition contains fewer pages (and one less chapter) than earlier editions and is suitable for a 4, 5 or 6 hour course.

Criminal Law and Procedure

Donald A. Dripps

The fourteenth edition continues the book's commitment to offering the most comprehensive, rigorous, and flexible materials on the American criminal process. With respect to the substantive criminal law, the new edition includes:Full case treatment of United States v. Davis, 139 S.Ct. 2319 (2019), illustrating the Supreme Court's continued commitment to a robust understanding of the void-for-vagueness doctrine;An updated treatment of homicide in general, with particular attention paid to a new wave of hostility to the felony murder doctrine, including full case treatment of Commonwealth v. Brown, 477 Mass. 805, 81 N.E.3d (2017), abolishing the doctrine by statutory interpretation, and People v. Swanson, 57 Cal.App.5th 604 (Ca. App. 2020), applying S.B. No. 1437, a reform statute that curtailed both felony murder and the natural-and-probable consequences doctrine in homicide prosecutions.Full case treatment of Rehaif v. United States, 139 S.Ct. 2191 (2019), a decision exemplifying the Court's approach to imputing culpable mental states to conduct and circumstance elements in criminal statutes;Full case treatment of Kahler v. Kansas, 140 S.Ct. 1021 (2020), rejecting a constitutional challenge to the state's elimination of insanity as an affirmative defense, and presenting along the way at thorough history of various versions of the defense;State v. Harris, 2017 WL 1505219 (Del. C.P. Apr. 20, 2017), a remarkable report by a judge acquitting the accused of sexual assault charges, illustrating the peculiar difficulties of prosecuting rape cases as well as the mechanics of the trial process.With respect to criminal procedure, the main development is the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Carpenter v. United States, 138 S.Ct. 2206 (2018). Carpenter held that that federal agents violated the Fourth Amendment by obtaining seven days of location data, from the defendant's service provider, without first obtaining a search warrant. The new edition relies on a recent District Court opinion, United States v. Diggs, 385 F. Supp. 648 (N.D. Ill. 2019), to explain the important changes wrought by Carpenter.

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law, A Compact Casebook for a Short Course, 2021

Jesse H. Choper

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 2021. 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.
