How A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Offers Your Students a Learning Edge: Current Text:A Student's Guide supplies what your students need--the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2016), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code, and the text (with revision history) of the U.S. Constitution. In short, a handy, reliable Supplement for your students' exploration of Civil Procedure. PLUS... Commentary on the Rules and How They Work: Most Rules Supplements available to students stop there, with just an austere reprinting of these texts. But what students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure--and what is less likely to be found in either the casebook or a conventional study aid--is a dissection of language and meaning of each Rule, subpart-by-subpart. Students may feel themselves comfortable with "big-picture" concepts addressed by the Rules, but less comfortable on the Rules' practical application. The commentary in A Student's Guide helps fill that gap and manage student apprehension. Treating the Rules in order, students are first given the full Rule text, followed by the "Purpose & Scope" of that Rule, followed by the "Core Concept" of each Rule subpart, followed lastly by extensive practitioner-developed analyses and discussions of that Rule subpart in application. It is a level of Rule-based analysis rarely found in student materials. PLUS... An Overview of Critical Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, in rem jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of how the Rules fit within those related practice contexts. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide offers students a strong introduction to the interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this Rules Supplement into a "finding aid," of sorts, for students as they work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. The case law is extensive (though introductory), and very current. This edition of A Student's Guide, for example, contains scores of citations to primary authorities--including many decided just within the past year. This new edition also contains fulsome discussions of both Twombly and Iqbal, as well as the Supreme Court's other recent opinions on Civil Procedure concepts. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.

A surprisingly tender coming-of-age story of a close-knit yet tough Sicilian-American family that accepts and welcomes a young boy struggling to understand himself—by the former Daily News (New York) gossip columnist and E! television host. A.J. Benza’s distinctive blend of wit, dry humor, and genuine tenderness shines through this candid, compelling memoir about the summer of 1974 when his shy, effeminate cousin comes to live with A.J.’s family, which is dominated by his short-tempered, outspoken, hyper-masculine father. At its core, A.J.’s story is about learning that “being exactly who you were meant to be is the only thing that matters.” Through anecdotes of fishing with his father, playing tackle football, and conquering neighborhood bullies, he tells a story of triumph and acceptance, of a loving but rough around the edges family that puts aside its prejudices to welcome with open arms a young boy struggling to understand his sexuality and ultimately accept himself. In a sometimes raw and always endearing voice, ’74 and Sunny is a revelatory account of a life-defining summer on Long Island, when tolerance wins over ignorance, family neutralizes fear, and love triumphs over all. For anyone who’s navigated the choppy seas of adolescence, this story about redefining what it means to be a man, and learning to accept those whom we might fail to understand will surely resonate.

There has been a sea-change in dermatology in the last three decades. Managed care, electronic records and communication, cosmetic dermatology, direct-to-consumer advertising, core competencies, and conflicts of interest were either nascent concepts or not even on the horizon as recently as the mid-1980s. The public, accrediting organizations, and physicians themselves recognize the need for training resources in dermatology ethics and professionalism. There is a need to address these topics in a format that will stimulate dialogue and reflection.

Last updated Dec 25, 2015. Used books may have outdated content. We make content updates every 8-10 weeks based on customers' comments, editorial input and latest test changes. The most current version is only available directly from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Sterling Test Prep web store. This book was developed through an analysis of prior MBE exams to identify questions that are best able to predict success or failure on the bar examination. The outlines describe principles of substantive law, which most often govern the correct answer to most questions on each section of the MBE: ∙ Constitutional law ∙ Contract law ∙ Criminal law ∙ Evidence ∙ Property law ∙ Tort law ∙ Federal jurisdiction MBE Essentials: Governing Law describes the principles of substantive law, which most often governs the correct answers to Multistate Bar Examination Questions. The performance of candidates on individual questions has been correlated with success or failure on the bar examination.Through an analysis of these statistics, we have been able to identify those questions that are best able to predict success or failure on the bar examination and put together the outlines of laws that govern those questions. Students should learn these important governing law principles in order to determine the answers to the questions on the MBE. These rules of law will likely determine the answers to more than half of the questions on each section of the MBE. Knowing these principles helps to make a decision between two tough choices; it is important to have this knowledge to get a passing score on the exam.

2014 Unhanged Arthur Award for Best Unpublished First Crime Novel — Winner It’s too cold to go missing in northern B.C., as a mismatched team of investigators battle the clock while the disappearances add up. A popular rockabilly singer has vanished in the snowbound Hazeltons of northern B.C. Lead RCMP investigator David Leith and his team work through the possibilities: has she been snatched by the so-called Pickup Killer, or does the answer lie here in the community, somewhere among her reticent fans and friends? Leith has much to contend with: rough terrain and punishing weather, motel-living and wily witnesses. The local police force is tiny but headstrong, and one young constable seems more hindrance than help — until he wanders straight into the heart of the matter. The urgency ramps up as one missing woman becomes two, the second barely a ghost passing through. Suspects multiply, but only at the bitter end does Leith discover who is the coldest girl of all. Watch for Book #2 of the B.C. Blues Crime series, Undertow, coming in March 2017!
