Computer Crime Law

Orin S. Kerr

No area of criminal law and procedure is undergoing more dramatic change, and more exciting developments, than computer crime law. 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.

Thwart Climate Change Now

Bill Caplan

Thwart Climate Change Now: Reducing Embodied Carbon Brick by Brick addresses an imperative—to slow the pace of climate change within the coming decade—before it's too late. While climate policy typically focuses on future decarbonization 10 to 20 years out, temperatures continue to rise. Greenhouse gases emitted upfront from the materials fabrication, construction, and renovation of our physical environment—embodied emissions—accelerate the rate of global warming now. Sadly, they increase atmospheric carbon before our buildings and infrastructure are even used. Often ignored or deemed too perplexing to resolve, the need to reduce embodied emissions immediately is the subject of this book.Written for a variety of readers—from policymakers and legislators to architects and developers—Thwart Climate Change Now addresses how to tackle the built environment's "embodied" carbon emissions, highlighting specific design and policy issues that overlook their own contribution to atmospheric carbon. The book brings together the science of climate change, sustainable design, and green policies in a language accessible to a diverse readership, followed by case study examples to support design, policy and legislative recommendations to slow emissions growth in the near term.

Environmental Law, Disrupted.

Keith Hirokawa

To date, U.S. law has largely served as an obstacle to an honest assessment of our preparedness to face the climate change challenge. Given that society has become comfortable amidst mild climatic conditions, and given a pervasive reluctance to change, extreme and abrupt climatic changes will hit hard. Our current legal structure maintains a dangerous status quo and it is time to unleash the potential of communities and the private sector to produce innovative solutions.This book, the fourth in a series by the Environmental Law Collaborative, addresses disruption from a variety of influences and perspectives. Some essays consider the disruptive effects of environmental changes on human and eco-logical safety, security, and well-being, suggesting that the impacts of climate changes are not accounted for in the current legal system. Some identify key changes needed to respond to climatic challenges, social inequities, and dwindling grey and green resources. Others deconstruct social, political, and professional frameworks to understand how such influences might be used to disrupt the current regime, or even ones where expectations are being disrupted with the endorsement of law. Taken together, these essays provide an understanding of the cause, effect, and opportunity that environmental disruption presents in the climate change era.

Experiencing Civil Procedure

James E. Moliterno

This is the first primary text for a Civil Procedure course to incorporate skills assignments into the book. The book contains the statutes, rules, and edited cases that are the staples of traditional Civil Procedure casebooks. Beyond thoroughly covering the traditional materials, the book actively involves students in the application of civil procedure concepts. It includes three simple simulation cases: one contracts-based, one torts-based, and one blended case, all calibrated for use by first year students. Sample documents from real cases are also included, giving practical context to concepts. Reading the sample documents allows students to see how lawyers engage the civil procedure concepts in actual work. Students using this book will engage in experiential learning exercises, including drafting the jurisdictional allegations for complaints, drafting very simple pleadings and motions, and responding to supervisor email messages.

MBEs for the MBE

O.J. Salinas

The Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) heavily influences whether you pass the bar exam. But studying for the MBE can be a daunting challenge. There's just so much law to learn and review and, often, not enough time to make you feel comfortable and confident in your test preparation. This creative and easy-to-read book provides valuable tools to help you study for the MBE more effectively and efficiently. It also provides access to AdaptiBar® questions and answers so that you have multiple opportunities to practice recalling and applying the substantive law throughout your bar preparation.This book delivers on its title. A large part of the book includes summaries (or "Blueprints") of the seven substantive areas of law tested on the MBE: Civil Procedure, Contracts, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law/Criminal Procedure, Evidence, Property and Torts. The Blueprints are included at the beginning of each chapter for each substantive area of law. Within each chapter are memorization strategies and techniques (or "Mnemonics") to help you better categorize and recall the immense amount of black letter law tested on the MBE. Each chapter also has separated, highlighted rules and tips for the commonly tested subtopics on the MBE, and each highlighted rule is listed in the book's appendix as a short review of the substantive law. Each chapter also includes AdaptiBar® questions and answers (or "Examples")—in the text and on an online platform—where you can practice answering multiple-choice questions and assess and reinforce your understanding of the substantive law covered in the book.With over 500 highlighted rules, numerous mnemonics, and 150 practice questions, this book is an excellent resource for anyone reviewing the substantive law tested on the MBE. This book can be a stand-alone textbook for a bar preparation course focused on the MBE. It can also be used as a supplement to traditional bar vendor materials. Lastly, as usefully described in Chapter 2, this book can be used by 1Ls as a supplement to their law studies. So, this book can help you transition to the study of law, and it can help you pass the law licensing exam!

Domestic Relations, Cases and Materials

Walter Wadlington

The Ninth Edition continues to incorporate judicial opinions from state, federal, and international courts that illustrate the evolution and dynamism of domestic relations with compelling factual scenarios that illustrate both statutory and common law. Specifically, the casebook utilizes the newly revised Uniform Parentage Act, the federal Family First Prevention Services Act, and other newly enacted statutes pertaining to domestic violence, joint physical custody, and assisted reproductive technology.There are multiple Problems spread throughout the chapters, drawn from actual state and federal judicial opinions, which test student understanding and illustrate the real-life consequences of the legal issues being discussed.
