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.

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.

American Civil Procedure

Author: Geoffrey C. Hazard
Publisher: Yale University Press
ISBN: 0300065043
Release Date: 1995-08-01
Genre: Law

From divorce proceedings to personal injury disputes to lawsuits over busing, affirmative action, and labor relations, most conflicts in American society may eventually find their way into a courtroom. Such civil conflicts, which do not involve violations of the criminal code, encompass both actions between private parties and public controversies. This book describes and analyzes civil litigation in the United States. Geoffrey C. Hazard, Jr., and Michele Taruffo discuss both specific details and broader themes of American civil litigation, explaining (without legalese) jury trial, the adversary system, the power of courts to make law as well as to 'declare' it, and the role of civil justice in government and in the resolution of controversial social issues. Hazard and Taruffo examine the stages of civil procedure, including the lawyers' role in - preparing and presenting cases; the pretrial, pleading and discovery, trial, and appeal process; and procedural variations. They explore the historical evolution of common law and procedure and compare American civil procedure with that in other modern societies in Europe, Latin America, and Japan. They conclude by discussing the economic, political, and moral constraints on litigation, possible innovations to the process, and the political significance of public access to civil justice.

Cases and Materials on Criminal Law

Author: Joshua Dressler
Publisher: West Academic Publishing
ISBN: 0314279822
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Law

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

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,

Patt V Donner

Author: David B. Oppenheimer
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 1609304314
Release Date: 2013-12-13
Genre: Law

Contextualizing Civil Procedure It's the Civil Procedure Professors' classic lament - litigators who are former students are always telling us that NOW they see why civil procedure is so important, and that NOW they understand it. Our challenge is to make the course accessible to our students while they are enrolled, not just after they start practicing. The Patt v. Donner case file is intended to do just that - to help civil procedure students put the course in context as they study, by requiring them to follow, and help draft the pleadings, as a simulated case unfolds from the first day of the semester to the last. On day 1 students watch a ten-minute You Tube(tm) video of an initial client interview. Paula Patt, a newly arrived graduate student at UC Berkeley has been denied an apartment; she suspects it's because she's a single mother. Over the course of the semester students participate in drafting her complaint and seeking a TRO; switch sides to help complete motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim, lack of personal jurisdiction, and lack of subject matter jurisdiction; switch back to amend the complaint and move for discovery sanctions; and conclude the term with jury voir dire and a settlement negotiation. Each pleading exercise provides the student with a largely completed pleading; all they need to do is draft a few key paragraphs. The exercises can be completed as homework or in class, as solo assignments or in teams, and with feedback from the instructor, teaching assistants, or through peer review. The instructors' edition contains teaching notes and a completed example of each pleading exercise. For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.

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.
