Cases and Materials on Federal Courts

Michael L. Wells

The distinctive feature of this Federal Courts casebook, and the main difference between it and other Federal Courts books, is its systematic focus on remedial issues, especially the problems that arise when a litigant tries to enforce federal constitutional or statutory rights against state or federal governments and officers in the federal courts. Departing from the traditional approach of Federal Courts books, we begin with a chapter on section 1983 litigation. The book stresses economy of means, clarity of presentation, and attention to the real-world Federal Courts issues that students need to understand and anticipate. This edition covers the major cases decided by the Supreme Court over the past four years. New main cases include Rucho v. Common Cause, Lexmark v. Static Control Components, and Spokeo v. Robins (all in chapter 4). In chapter 5, Lapides v. Board of Regents is now a main case. In the notes we discuss Ziglar v. Abbasi (chapters 1 and 2), Knick v. Township of Scott (chapters 1 and 2), Armstrong v. Exceptional Child Center (chapters 1 and 5), Lightfoot v. Cendant Mortgage Corp. (chapter 3), Virginia House of Delegates v. Bethune-Hill (chapter 4), Franchise Tax Board v. Hyatt (chapter 5), Davila v. Davis, Johnson v. Lee, Wilson v. Sellers, Shoop v. Hill, and Montgomery v. Louisiana (all in chapter 9), Wellness International Network v Sarif, Oil States Energy Services v. Greene's Energy Group, and Ortiz v. United States (all in chapter 10.)

How to Please the Court

Paul I. Weizer

How to Please the Court: A Moot Court Handbook is a resource designed for students and teachers to prepare for and participate in undergraduate appellate court simulations. This text is the only one of its kind on the market, focusing on helping undergraduate students try their hand at appellate advocacy. The authors combine their decades of experience teaching and coaching moot court to help students understand key skills needed in appellate advocacy such as legal research, critical thinking, oral advocacy, and impromptu speaking. The authors also help students prepare for competition by taking them step by step through the work needed before a tournament and what to expect at a tournament.Unlike similar texts for law students, How to Please the Court speaks to students who have not started law school and may not have access to the materials or educational resources that a law school provides. This text includes chapters like Understanding Legal Research, Moot Court as a Classroom Activity, and Brief Writing for Moot Court. This text and its blueprint for appellate advocacy simulations would be a valuable addition to classes like American Government, Constitutional Law, Communication and Advocacy, Judicial Politics, and of course Moot Court.

Sports Law

Steven J. Weisman

This book tracks the profoundly evolving world of sports law. This evolution is seen in myriad ways, ranging on various topics: questions regarding sport and gender, the use of prosthetic devices, whether a touchdown celebration can be copywritten, and the regulation of sports gambling. Indeed, the law is constantly changing to keep pace with the rapidly evolving world of sports. This book analyzes both traditional areas of sports law—such as contract law, labor law, and violence in sports—as well as new developments in sports, such as players' privacy rights in the data derived from high-tech athletic apparel and more.Further coverage is given to new emerging issues such as unionization of college athletes, genetic manipulation of athletes, CTE, e-sports, horseracing, social media, concerns around disabled athletes and performance enhancing drugs, as well as sports law's increased involvement with stadium financing, sports gambling, and more. Written by a business school professor, it engages the student with real-world examples and cases and includes case law that should bring the world of law into focus for a wide range of students."This is one of the most comprehensive law texts available, with a writing style that draws the reader in. Weisman puts the law into language easily understandable for students studying sport law and those of us with little to no law background. As an athletic administrator, I particularly enjoyed the chapter on College Sports as it shares a historical view of the development of college sports while infusing the law and its application to sport. I would highly recommend this book to my sport administration colleagues and sport management students who have an interest in gaining a better understanding of the laws impacting sport at all levels." - Laurie Priest, retired Director of Athletics, Mount Holyoke College
