Constitutional Law

Gregory E. Maggs

This edition of the casebook is designed specifically for use by undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in Constitutional Law but who are not law students. The casebook differs from many other textbooks aimed at this audience because it enables students to read the Supreme Court's decisions rather than just reading about them. To make this possible, the casebook defines legal terms, explains court procedures, and provides other background information that would be unfamiliar to non-law students. In writing the book, the authors have strived to make constitutional law easily teachable and readily accessible. They have selected the cases very carefully and provided extensive excerpts of the opinions so that students get a good sense of the Court's reasoning. Text boxes call the students' attention to important aspects of each opinion, and the book is filled with introductions, points for discussion, hypotheticals, and executive summaries. The authors present a diversity of views on every subject, and, reflecting some of their own disagreements, the authors have written point-counterpoint discussions on many disputed questions.

Copyright Law

Alfred C. Yen

This casebook emphasizes the essential cases and materials at the heart of copyright law. Instead of attempting to exhaustively cover every last doctrine in copyright, this casebook selectively focuses on the major cases, doctrines, ideas, and theories in this complex and fascinating area of the law. The result is a streamlined and well-organized casebook of manageable length that keeps the central themes of copyright front and center. This allows teachers and students to take the time to examine, discuss, and master these essential materials and grapple with the complexities and ambiguities in a way that fosters a deeper understanding of the subject matter. The authors have written extensively about copyright, the arts, and the impact of new technology.

A Short & Happy Guide to Conquering the MBE

Don L. Doernberg

The Multistate Bar Exam is intimidating because it covers a wide array of subjects and because it is all multiple-choice questions. If you feel overwhelmed by all the subjects and the nuances of them and have never liked multiple-choice questions, particularly in law school, then this book is precisely what you need.Practice multiple-choice questions can serve two purposes. The more common is that they allow you to have some sense of how you are doing—an assessment function. The less common but far more useful function is that they provide a structured study method for review of material. Few students use them that way, but those who do reap great rewards.This small volume will show you how to use practice multiple-choice questions to greatest advantage. That involves changing the way you approach those questions. Conquering the MBE gives you a step-by-step process for attacking every multiple-choice question in every MBE subject, with lots of examples. You will discover that most questions offer review of four concepts rather than just one, and they do so on concrete contexts, not in the abstract. You will also discover that when you do this step-by-step review, one answer, and only one answer, is correct.The authors have tutored hundreds of law students in using the method presented. It works.

Criminal Practice

Ingrid Eagly

Criminal practice demands of new advocates a daunting array of skills. They must be interviewers, investigators, counselors, researchers, scribes, planners, negotiators, ethicists, strategists, and courtroom protectors of truth, justice, and the oppressed. Mastering these many skills takes time, a luxury the system too rarely affords. Here between two covers is a wise and readable guide to all facets of a new advocate's role. More than a trial-practice manual, this handbook looks beneath a lawyer's public duties to the preparation and planning that lead to courtroom success. And it gives both prosecutors and defenders an insider's view of their counterparts' roles, lending insights that build both effectiveness and mutual respect.

The Making of Reverse Discrimination

Ellen Messer-Davidow

This book about DeFunis v. Odegaard and Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, the first two cases challenging race-conscious admissions to professional schools to reach the US Supreme Court, works on legal-judicial discourse, showing how the mechanisms of law, the shape-shifting capacity of language, and the pressures of social surrounds created white-against-white conflicts that marginalized the persons, voices, and interests of minority applicants and their communities, thereby reproducing the regime of white privilege and minority disadvantage that structure higher education to this day.
