Materials for a Basic Course in Civil Procedure

Author: Kevin Clermont
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 163459309X
Release Date: 2017-02-17
Genre:

This casebook is the concise, and very modern, version of a respected classic of civil procedure casebooks. The key to its brevity is its efficient and systematic step-by-step survey of the subject in Part One, which provides a tight 270-page comprehensive treatment of current civil procedure. The survey suffices to give the students a complete and solid grounding in civil procedure by means of the cases, commentaries, text, and questions that progress from pretrial and settlement to trial, judgment, appeal, jurisdiction, and complex litigation. This brief yet thorough coverage leaves time for in-depth treatment of a few selected problem areas regarding the system's fundamental structure in Part Two on governing law, Part Three on authority to adjudicate, and Part Four on res judicata. The twelfth edition has been thoroughly updated. It covers major new cases on general and specific personal jurisdiction and on pleading, and it introduces new materials on the res judicata effect of statute-of-limitations dismissals. It also fully incorporates the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which affect such important topics as discovery.

Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 0314280162
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Law

The Eleventh Edition of this popular casebook provides a framework for studying both the essential and the cutting-edge issues of civil procedure while incorporating problems that test doctrinal understanding, foster case reading skills, and encourage a sense of litigation strategy. New Supreme Court cases have been integrated that impact personal jurisdiction (McIntyre, Goodyear), subject-matter jurisdiction (Grable, Gunn), pleading (Twombly, Iqbal), joinder (Pimentel), class actions (Dukes), and other important topics, including statutory changes such as the Jurisdiction Clarification Act. The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a first-year course, and can easily be adapted for courses of one- or two-semesters, of different credit hours, and with varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.

The Supreme Court and the Constitutional Structure

Author: Ernest A. Young
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 1599417405
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Law

This casebook is designed to reflect more accurately the way that Constitutional Law is generally taught in contemporary law schools. Most schools no longer attempt to offer a comprehensive survey course; rather, they offer an introduction to the subject that omits topics like the First Amendment and frequently focuses on issues of constitutional structure. The basic idea of this book is to conform the casebook more closely to the subjects actually covered in most introductory constitutional law courses. The book also tries to capture the best of both topical and historical arrangements. This book makes no attempt at comprehensive coverage. It combines a historical approach in the first half of the book with a very thorough doctrinal treatment of structural questions in the second. The book departs from most other casebooks in the field by offering longer cuts of fewer key cases, rather than trying to treat every significant case. The underlying theory is that the justices are considerably less cryptic when one includes a greater proportion of their explanations, and that the extra reading load is more than offset by the decrease in confusion. This book is divided into two principal parts. The first offers a general survey of judicial review, arranged as a history of the U.S. Supreme Court from Marbury to Bush v. Gore. This history accomplishes several goals: It presents an overall picture of the institution of judicial review as it has evolved over our history; it introduces the basics of a number of rights issues (e.g., equal protection and race, due process and privacy) not covered elsewhere in the course; and it exposes students to different theoretical approaches to constitutional interpretation. The second half of the book presents an in-depth doctrinal study of federalism and separation of powers,

Disability Rights Law

Author: Samuel R. Bagenstos
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 1609303539
Release Date: 2013-11-18
Genre: Law

This casebook focuses on the large issues of doctrine, theory, and policy that disability rights law raises in employment, government services, public accommodations, health care, housing, and education. This book focuses less on identifying "the rules" of disability rights law and more on exploring the big questions through longer excerpts from a smaller number of cases. It includes textual notes examining key theoretical and policy questions. New edition includes updated discussion of the ADAAA and new EEOC and DOJ regulations, deinstitutionalization litigation, standing and pleading requirements in public accommodations litigation, the implications of the Affordable Care Act, and other topics.

Federal Administrative Law

Author: Gary Lawson
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 1634599071
Release Date: 2015-11-26
Genre:

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 in order to provide the fundamental knowledge and concepts necessary to understand the subject, on the belief that an understanding of federal law can be translated into other settings. The book also maintains the straightforward organization and don't-hide-the-ball presentation that has characterized the book since its inception. The Seventh Edition contains five new principal cases, eight major new note cases, ten shorter new note cases, and updated treatments of all major topics. It also includes a revised Chapter I that includes an extended treatment of statutory interpretation to accommodate the increasing inclusion of Administrative Law in the first-year curriculum.

Contracts

Author: John Philip Dawson
Publisher: West Publishing Company
ISBN: STANFORD:36105062294868
Release Date: 1998-01
Genre: Contracts

The Seventh Edition of Contracts retains the distinctive character & the richness of previous editions. The standard of excellence set by this book over many years is due in larger measure to its "teachability." Developments in the law & in legal education have seemed to call for expanded treatment of some issues. This edition continues to track the increasing relevance of contract to at-will employment, the relationship of contract & tort (notably: the place of the misrepresentation & negligence torts in bargaining transactions), & the expanding technique of "implied" contract.

The Supreme Court and the Constitution

Author: Ernest Young
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 1628100303
Release Date: 2017-08-05
Genre:

The changed title for the second edition of Professor Young's constitutional law casebook reflects the book's expanded coverage of individual rights. The new edition retains both the first edition's historically-sequenced survey of leading cases from Marbury to Casey and its in-depth focus on contemporary doctrine concerning federalism and separation of powers. But it adds lengthy survey chapters on Due Process and Equal Protection, as well as a final chapter integrating both strands of rights doctrine through a case study of gay rights. Introductory material and notes have been updated throughout, and new principal cases include NFIB v. Sebelius, Zivotofsky v. Kerry, and Obergefell v. Hodges. As before, this casebook is designed to facilitate the introductory Constitutional Law courses taught in most law schools, rather than to attempt a comprehensive survey of the subject. The new edition does offer considerably more flexibility, however, in calibrating the balance between structural issues and individual rights.
