The First Fifteen

Susan Oki Mollway

American Legislative Practice

Sean J. Kealy

American Legislative Practice examines how legislatures develop and enact statutes through a blend of theory and practical considerations. The author spent several years as a legal counsel and legislative drafter with the Massachusetts Legislature and for the past 15 years has directed the Legislative Policy & Drafting Clinic at Boston University School of Law. Each chapter covers a different aspect of legislative activity: the structure of the legislature, ethical issues, policy development and the legislative process, constitutional issues, legislative drafting, lobbying and advocacy, statutory interpretation by agencies and courts, and legislative oversight.This book is different in a few important ways. First, unlike other law school legislation textbooks, American Legislative Practice does not focus on how judges view and interpret statutes. Rather, the book treats the legislative process as the center of our nation's political and legal discourse. Readers are actively encouraged to put themselves in the place of legislators and their staff to better understand the process and the difficulties in creating legislation. Second, this book does not exclusively focus on Congress, but also uses materials from various state legislatures. Third, American Legislative Practice employs several original case studies, simulations and exercises to help put legislative decisions in context and spark class discussion.American Legislative Practice could be used in either a traditional theory-based legislation class or in a policy-related practicum or clinic. It could also be either the primary text or a supplement for a political science course focused on Congress or the legislative process.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Domestic Relations

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. And the casebook has been streamlined to provide a logical and concise progression of material, from nonmarital cohabitation to adoption of adults. This logical sequencing permits the book to be used for two, three or four credit courses, especially since there is a statutory supplement offering a more complete view of the ways that statutes affect family law in today's America. Among the topics addressed are:Nonmarital Cohabitation: including enforcement of agreements or judicial distribution of assets and remuneration for servicesFree Exercise Challenges: including privacy rights, school vouchers, and medical treatmentsPremarital and Marital Contracting: including proper execution and subsequent enforcementAssisted Reproductive Technology: including surrogacy agreements, posthumous conception, and embryo distribution at divorceMarriage: including common law, proxy, and the rationale for a state's insistence of marital formalitiesDivorce: including grounds and defenses and the factors necessary to achieve a proper domicileMarital Property and Spousal Support: including definition of what constitutes property and temporary and permanent supportChild Support: including state guidelines, effect of joint physical custody, and federal efforts to recover lost supportChild Custody and Visitation: including parenting plans, allocation arrangements, best interest of child, and modification of custody arrangementsTermination of Parental Rights: including Constitutional guarantees, predictive termination, and entitlement to civil representationAdoption of Minor and Adults: including civil responsibility of adoption agencies and transnational adoptions
