Criminal Procedure

Russell L. Weaver

This state-of the-art casebook is both easy and fun to use. It is designed to give you the basis for an enjoyable, comprehensive learning experience for your students, providing you with the sort of piquing materials that should prompt interested and insightful classroom discussion. The focus here is on teachability, rather than encyclopedic coverage of the field. The classic Supreme Court opinions are included, as well as numerous problem-style hypotheticals that are based on the facts of cutting-edge lower court rulings. The casebook also uses text boxes inside the judicial opinions to pose questions for class discussion, provide practice pointers, and share useful links to information about the history and impact of the decisions. This mixed presentation of traditional doctrines and debates about current legal issues allows your students to hone their analytical skills, as they learn to construct the arguments of today's prosecutors and defense counsel in criminal procedure litigation.As with other books in the Interactive Casebook series, an accompanying electronic version allows students immediate access to the full text of cited cases, statutes, articles, and other materials in the Westlaw database.This book includes chapters 3, and 9-23 of the main volume.

Accounting for Lawyers

Matthew J. Barrett

This sixth edition of the most widely adopted text in the field continues to introduce law students with no accounting background to financial statements and the ways that accounting concepts and issues arise in transactional work and litigation. Designed for either two- or three-hour courses, this text uses a "learn by doing" approach, including:Illustrative financial statements from Starbucks Corporation; and Multiple problems using the financial statements from Amazon.com, Inc., Google Inc., and United Parcel Service, Inc.The first section of each chapter, entitled "Importance to Lawyers," explains how the topics discussed in that chapter affect the practice of law. The text empowers students:To work backwards through the bookkeeping process and, when necessary, to trace an amount that appears on the financial statements through the accounting records to the ledgers, journals, and supporting documentation;To negotiate agreements or other legal documents containing accounting terminology or concepts;To recognize "red flags" that suggest financial difficulties--or even financial fraud; andTo understand--and, when necessary, defend against--the opportunities to obtain accounting-related information about an underlying lawsuit and then to use that information during litigation.The sixth edition incorporates numerous developments since the fifth edition, most significantly discussions about the new generally accepted accounting principles governing revenue recognition, lease accounting, and credit losses. Often collectively referred to as "new GAAP," these rules mark the most significant changes to financial accounting in at least a generation. The sixth edition also identifies and discusses various financial accounting issues that lawyers should keep in mind during the pandemic and its aftermath.

The Impeachments of Donald Trump

Victoria F. Nourse

The Impeachments of Donald Trump: An Introduction to Constitutional Interpretation presents an accessible introduction to one of the nation's most searing constitutional confrontations between the President and Congress. The purpose of the book is two-fold: First, it provides a curated record of a constitutional moment of extraordinary importance in the history of modern democracy. As such, it can be used by any instructor wishing to add interest to constitutional law courses in or outside law schools, whether in departments of history, political science, or legal studies. Second, precisely because this event is important in understanding modern democracy, the book is pitched at a wider audience than standard legal texts, and can be used to teach the very basics of legal argument—how lawyers reason about the constitution—to undergraduates as well as first-year law students. Teaching constitutional reasoning can pose great difficulties when students are given ancient 18th-century materials with no apparent relevance to pressing issues in modern memory. Throughout the book, students are asked to consider the basic form of arguments in constitutional law: text, history, past precedent, future precedent, and democratic ethos. This book contributes to the growing literature addressing democratic constitutionalism—constitutional reasoning outside the courts. More importantly, it provides a lively—and exciting—context in which to teach legal reasoning for introductory courses on the Constitution.

International Law

Jens David Ohlin

Ohlin's casebook is designed to offer a comprehensive treatment of public international law suitable for a one-semester, three-credit introduction to international law—by far the most popular format for teaching international law at a U.S. law school.Important features include:A clear explanation of how the methodology and doctrine of international is different from domestic law.Each chapter begins with a clear explanation of the legal doctrine and precisely highlights the areas where that doctrine is unsettled or contested.Each chapter ends with a conclusion that recaps the main points from the chapter. These bullet points also function as de facto learning objectives for each chapter so that students can assess whether they have mastered the key concepts in that area.Each chapter includes modular Problem Cases in shaded boxes which encourage students to apply the learned doctrine to contemporary controversies. The modular nature of these boxes gives the instructor the freedom to focus on, or skip, these Problem Cases.The second edition features discussion of new cases and events, including the following:Legal Consequences of the Separation of the Chagos Archipelago (self-determination)Urgenda Foundation v. Netherlands (climate change)Jesner v. Arab Bank (Alien Tort Statute)The Gambia v. Myanmar (standing to sue for genocide)Diplomatic controversy between U.S. and U.K. over the Anne Sacoolas/Harry Dunn car accident (diplomatic immunity)Breakdown of the WTO Appellate BodyExpanded materials on the law of occupationDiscussion of treaties with First Nations

Legal Writing

Kristen Konrad Tiscione

Designed for first-year law students in a legal research and writing course, this comprehensive text is grounded in rhetorical theory but written in accessible prose and a casual tone. The book welcomes students to law school, explains the difference between legal writing and other first-year courses, and suggests how to read cases and prepare for class. It addresses sources of law, hierarchy of authority, the research and writing process, forms of reasoning, and predictive and persuasive writing, with a focus on legal memoranda and appellate briefs. To provide faculty more flexibility in writing assignments, it includes chapters on email, opinion letters, bench memos, demand letters, complaints, motions, and supporting memoranda. Chapters include explanatory text, samples, and explanations of samples, as well as additional suggested reading. Samples throughout the book draw on the same client problem, making it easier for students to understand the differences among writing genres.Chapters on legal writing conventions, grammar and punctuation, figures of speech, and citation format (with references to the ALWD Guide to Legal Citation (6th ed.) and The Bluebook (21st ed.)), provide a "one-stop shop" for students and handy reference material for faculty. Unique chapters on giving oral advice and oral advocacy (including a chapter on public speaking and overcoming the fear of public speaking) complement the writing focus, helping students prepare for class exercises related to writing assignments, such as meeting with clients, reporting to supervisors, and oral argument. Several chapters include exercises with suggested answers in an appendix (e.g., questions on hierarchy of authority, research, legal reasoning, grammar and punctuation, and citation) and checklists for the research and writing process. As part of the Interactive Casebook Series, this book will be available in print or online, with interactive questions at the end of each online chapter for students to test their knowledge. The text is comprehensive enough to be used in an advanced legal writing course or writing seminar as well.About the Author: The author has litigation experience in BigLaw, as well as twenty-six years of teaching experience in the J.D. and LL.M. programs at Georgetown Law.

Administrative Law Theory and Fundamentals

Ilan Wurman

Administrative Law Theory and Fundamentals: An Integrated Approach takes a formalist approach to administrative law while defending more of the administrative state than other formalist accounts. It proposes a theory of administrative power that better explains constitutional text and structure, as well as historical and modern practice. It argues that there are "exclusive" powers that only Congress, the President, and the courts can respectively exercise, but also "nonexclusive" powers that can be exercised by more than one branch. This theory of "nonexclusive powers" allows students and scholars of administrative law to make more sense of—or better critiques of—administrative concepts such as delegation, quasi-powers, judicial deference, agency adjudications, the chameleon-like quality of government power, and of the separation of powers more broadly.The casebook also innovates by more extensively discussing (and including in appendices) the 1852 steamboat legislation and the 1887 Interstate Commerce Act; deploying lessons of statutory interpretation as they arise in specific cases; interspersing online assessment questions for each chapter; and by including dedicated "debating" sections that excerpt from the secondary literature on the theory, values, and policy merits of contested doctrines such as deference, unitary executive power, the due process revolution, and universal injunctions. Finally, the book makes numerous organizational improvements, including by placing due process materials after Article III materials and restructuring materials on reviewability.
