Impeccable Research

Mark K. Osbeck

Unlike conventional legal research books that limit their focus to teaching students how to find and use the various sources of law, this book stresses a systematic, practice-oriented approach to acquiring legal-research skills. It presents a simple yet highly effective research strategy that helps students efficiently solve the types of complex legal-research problems they can expect to encounter in the workplace. In addition, the book includes a section on the various primary and secondary sources of law, and how best to find and use them, as well as a section containing tips for summer interns and associates, and a Trouble-Shooting Guide to help students overcome the occasional obstacles that may crop up in their research projects. The book also includes a detailed Research Checklist for students to use before turning in their work. For these reasons, the book makes an ideal stand-alone text for the first-year legal-research class, as well as an excellent supplementary text for advanced legal-research classes.

The fifth edition of Kerr's popular text has the latest cutting-edge material, including many updates since the fourth edition in 2017. New cases and materials address the Supreme Court's recent decisions in Van Buren v. United States and Carpenter v. United States; new statutes such as the Cloud Act and state laws on nonconsensual pornography; and the latest lower court circuit splits on compelled decryption, the border search exception, private searches of computers, and e-mail scanning. The chapters on computer misuse, the Fourth Amendment, and international evidence collection have been substantially rewritten and reorganized to reflect the latest case law.The book covers every aspect of criminal law in the digital age, and it is presented in an engaging and accessible style. Topics range from computer fraud laws and international computer crimes to Internet surveillance laws and the Fourth Amendment. It is part traditional casebook, part treatise. It both straightforwardly explains the law and presents many exciting and new questions of law that courts are only now beginning to consider. The book is ideally suited either for a 3-credit course or a 2-credit seminar. It will appeal both to criminal law professors and those interested in cyberlaw or law and technology. No advanced knowledge of computers and the Internet is required or assumed.Computer crime law has become an increasingly important area of criminal practice, and this book provides the ideal introduction to the field. Many U.S. Attorney's Offices have dedicated computer crime units, as have many state Attorney General offices. Any student with a background in this emerging area of law will have a leg up on the competition. Students will also find the book easy and fun to read, while professors will appreciate the accessible introduction to an important new field with many open questions for legal scholars.The materials are authored by Orin Kerr, of UC Berkeley Law School, who is widely recognized as the leading academic authority on the law of computer crime.

John Monahan

This title offers an engaging and comprehensive overview of how American courts use research and testimony from the social sciences in reaching their decisions. It is organized around Daubert v.

Federal Administrative Law

Gary Lawson

This casebook emphasizes current doctrine and its historical evolution in exploring the four basic foundations of federal administrative law: separation of powers, statutorily and constitutionally required procedures for agency adjudication and rulemaking, scope of judicial review of agency action, and the availability and timing of judicial review. The book concentrates on federal rather than state administrative law, on the belief that an understanding of federal law can be translated into other settings if so desired. This edition of the book maintains the straightforward organization and don't-hide-the-ball presentation that has characterized the book since its inception. The Ninth Edition contains four new principal cases and numerous new notes and note cases, including a new framework for the materials on separation of powers. The book prominently continues, from the prior edition, to expand materials on statutory interpretation to accommodate the increasing inclusion of Administrative Law in the first-year curriculum.

Environmental Law in Context

Robin Kundis Craig

The Fifth Edition is updated to take account of new developments in the law, new regulations, and new cases, as well as the multiple and ongoing regulatory changes and reversals among the Obama, Trump, and Biden Administrations. In addition, the casebook has been modified throughout to call more attention to environmental justice issues. Chapter 1 (RCRA and CERCLA) and Chapter 4 (Clean Air Act) now have expanded discussions of how environmental justice issues arise in the context of pollution control permitting. Chapter 2 (NEPA) includes two of the Standing Rock Sioux decisions about the Dakota Access Pipeline. In addition, the Introduction chapter has been revamped to more thoroughly introduce non-statutory approaches to environmental law, including constitutional and common-law approaches to the public trust doctrine and a brand new section on the Rights of Nature movement, emphasizing the environmental justice and indigenous rights tie-ins to those movements, before shifting to a discussion of why states and the federal government would choose statutes, a theme continued at the beginning of Chapter 1.The challenge of the Fifth Edition is the ongoing changes to environmental regulations in the opening year of the Biden Administration. The Fifth Edition updates through June 2021 and points to resources for keeping track of new developments. It discusses continuing regulatory issues such as climate change under the Clean Air Act and "waters of the United States" under the Clean Water Act in some detail, emphasizing the issues in contention and explaining why the EPA's regulatory approach continues to evolve.

Social Security Law in a Nutshell

Frank S. Bloch

This book is intended to provide a broad overview of Social Security law and practice. It covers the two main titles of the Social Security Act: Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), with a special focus on the disability provisions of both programs. It begins with an introductory chapter that places current Social Security law and practice in its historical context, including a brief discussion of the circumstances surrounding the passage of the Act in 1935, the major amendments to the Act since 1935, and key Supreme Court decisions that have impacted the coverage and administration of OASDI and SSI. The remaining chapters can be grouped into three parts: chapters 2, 3, and 4 describe the central eligibility requirements for benefits under both programs; chapters 5 and 6 delve more deeply into the requirements for disability benefits; and chapters 7, 8, and 9 focus on the administration of the programs, including the roles of lawyers and other claimant representatives, administrators and administrative judges, and federal courts.
