Acing Constitutional Law

Author: Russell L. Weaver
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 0314181350
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Law

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.

Unlike most constitutional law books, this book does not assume that the students have any particular knowledge of American history, government, or law, so it begins with a rich introductory chapter to provide students with a necessary foundation for the rest of the material. Thereafter, it supplements the familiar cases with historical context and pictures and biographies of current and famous justices adjacent to their opinions. It makes the traditional canon accessible and enjoyable to the current generation. Easily covered over two semesters, the book manages through careful case selection to avoid drastic editing of all but the longest cases.

Release Date: 2008
Genre: Law

First published in 1999, Acing Your First Year of Law School has become one of the bestselling law school preparation books of all time. Every law student will tell you that the first year is the most important and the most frustrating. Law professors do not teach students the law, instead they leave students on their own to figure out the "answer" from a series of questions. This is a manual that teaches first year law students the ten basic skills they need to know to start learning their first day and ace their first year. The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the best use of technology. It includes a Preface that addresses the Socratic Method and how to beat it. It also includes an Epilogue that focuses on tasks that are necessary to ensure a successful transition from the first to the second semester.

The book covers all major traditional constitutional topics, including the role of the federal judiciary, separation of powers, federalism, the non-criminal provisions of the Bill of Rights, and the Reconstruction Amendments.

Leading Cases in Constitutional Law a Compact Casebook for a Short Course Casebookplus 2017

Author: Jesse Choper
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 1640200096
Release Date: 2017-08-09
Genre:

As a part of our CasebookPlus offering, you'll receive a new print book along with lifetime digital access to the downloadable eBook. In addition, you'll receive 12-month online access to the Learning Library which includes quizzes tied specifically to your book, an outline starter and three leading study aids in that subject and the Gilbert� Law Dictionary. The included study aids are the Black Letter Outline on Constitutional Law, Acing Constitutional Law and A Short & Happy Guide to Constitutional Law. 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 six renowned authors, now including Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, are co-editors of a long-time favorite teaching book, the much larger Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 12th 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 - Fallon - Kamisar - Shiffrin - Dorf - Schauer casebook, which contains extensive Notes & Questions, the latter can serve as a "resource" book for instructors teaching from the paperback. 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.

Its tone is accessible, while its structure allows for sophisticated classroom discussion.

Release Date: 2016-11-07
Genre:

This law school casebook is concise, rigorous, and yet accessible to students. It contains approximately 100 primary cases, including a greater proportion of recent Supreme Court decisions than other casebooks. The notes provide context, and realistic problems facilitate application of constitutional law principles and cases. Covering structural constitutional law (judicial power, distribution of powers, Congress' powers, federalism, and judicial protection of interstate commerce) and the reach of the Fourteenth Amendment (citizenship, privileges and immunities, due process, equal protection, and state action), this casebook incorporates entertaining elements and references contemporary controversies. Tight editing to make this edition even shorter than the last edition despite the incorporation of nearly 10% new materials, including the same-sex marriage decisions, the latest race discrimination decisions, and new cases involving limitations on Congress' powers make this popular casebook even better than the last.

Acing the LLB will help those students realise their full potential and achieve the very best marks. It explains what lecturers are looking for in a top class answer and is packed with easy-to-follow practical advice that students can use to improve their performance. The author draws upon his own experiences as a lecturer and marker of student work as well as those of colleagues at a range of institutions to offer sound and realistic advice. Engaging, accessible and very readable, this is an ideal guide for anyone starting out on an LLB or for current law students who are looking to improve their grades.

Additionally you'll receive the Learning Library which includes quizzes tied specifically to your book, an outline starter, and 12-month digital access to leading study aids and the Gilbert Law Dictionary. This long-popular constitutional law casebook has added two new co-authors for its newest (12th) new edition, Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, who have brought deep background and rich insight in helping to bring the book thoroughly up to date. In preparing the new edition, the authors have retained the basic format of prior editions, but have added new cases and re-edited old ones to ensure coverage of important topics in manageable numbers of pages. The Notes and Questions, which have long been a hallmark of the book, continue to present a wide range of perspectives for students to consider, rather than reflecting a single point of view that users of the book must either adopt or teach against. Professors will especially like the illuminating and provocative extracts from the literature that accompany important new cases involving the Affordable Care Act, same-sex marriage, affirmative action, and campaign finance and freedom of speech.
