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.

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.

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.
