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.

Acing Constitutional Law

Russell L. Weaver

This study aid features an innovative method of content organization. It uses a checklist format to lead students through questions they need to ask to fully evaluate the legal problem they are trying to solve. It also synthesizes the material in a way that most students are unable to do on their own, and assembles the different issues, presenting a clear guide to procedural analysis that students can draw upon when writing their exams. Other study aids provide sample problems, but none offers the systematic approach to problem solving found in this book.

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.

Introduction to Criminal Law

Russell L. Weaver

For the first time there is a Criminal Law textbook specifically geared to Master's level or undergraduate legal studies/law courses on the subject. The book, written by well-known legal scholars, fills a void. Master's In Legal Studies programs have become quite commonplace in the United States, and, additionally there are colleges experimenting with new undergraduate law programs. Faculty teaching in those programs, or teaching in Criminal Justice classes, however, typically have three imperfect choices if they want to use the case method of teaching law: 1) they use a Juris Doctor level casebook but assign substantially less material from the book; 2) they use a simplistic undergraduate or high school level textbook; or 3) they develop their own materials.This textbook, then, offers a perfect alternative. First, each chapter begins with an overview of the law on the subject covered for simple and easy access. The book that contains thought provoking problems designed to stimulate thought and produce interesting classroom discussion. The hypos are woven throughout the chapters and are designed to help students learn doctrine, illuminate trends in the law, and ultimately produce better learning. The book is also meant to teach practical skills to students going into the field. Some of the problems place students in practical situations that they are likely to encounter in a criminal justice career, and therefore encourage students to think about how they might handle those situations in real-life. The book is designed to be a very affordable paperback.
