Fundamentals of Modern Property Law

Author: Edward Rabin
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 1609303261
Release Date: 2017-03-18
Genre:

The Seventh Edition of Fundamentals of Modern Property Law retains the highly successful problem method that has long characterized this landmark casebook: students take on the role of the lawyer in fact-rich hypothetical problems (Assignments) with multiple legal issues. Each Assignment builds students' lawyering skills of analysis and problem solving, as they master the fundamental principles and doctrines of property law. In addition, many Assignments are ideal for instructor-designed simulations of other professional skills, such as client interviewing and counseling, negotiation, oral advocacy, drafting, and objective and persuasive writing. The Seventh Edition continues the book's emphasis on emerging issues of environmental sustainability. The Seventh Edition also provides a comprehensive introduction to Intellectual Property law and emphasizes the art of planning to avoid controversy, in contrast to the typical first year curricular focus on resolving existing controversies.

Studies in Contract Law Casebookplus

Author: Ian Ayres
Publisher: Foundation Press
ISBN: 1634606779
Release Date: 2017-07-14
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 Contracts in a Nutshell, Exam Pro on Contracts, Objective and Acing Contracts. In the Ninth Edition of Studies in Contract Law, Ian Ayres and Greg Klass have continued their work of streamlining, updating and supplementing this classic casebook. The new edition includes extensive discussion of the Draft Restatement (Third) of Consumer Contracts. There are new cases on telemarketing, good faith, the perfect tender rule, warranties and reliance, half-truths, fraud liability between contracting parties, class arbitration, adequate assurances, mitigation, mental anguish, intentional interference, and personal services contracts. And the authors have added three new drafting exercises to the many practice problems that the book has always included. This edition makes some structural changes to the chapter on remedies to make it more accessible to students. The discussion now begins with general principles, such as the choice between damages and specific performance, efficient breach, and the foreseeability, mitigation and certainty rules. It then addresses seller and buyer remedies, under the UCC and common law, followed by a discussion of special topics such as personal service contracts, liquidated damages, and recovery for nonpecuniary damages. The new edition also includes a new section on fraud liability between contract parties--a topic that usually falls in the gap between Torts and Contracts. And the authors have integrated materials from the arbitration chapter into the rest of the book, and added new section on the Supreme Court's recent class arbitration jurisprudence. Ayres has now recorded more than 90 contract law videos that will be freely available for viewing on Coursera.com and YouTube (search for "Ian Ayres Contracts"). These videos are largely free-standing discussions of individual cases from the casebook and can be used as supplemental lectures or to "flip the classroom." Ayres has also recorded more than 30 videos, also freely available on these platform (search for "Ayres Law Students toolkits"), covering basic legal concepts (e.g., rules vs. standards) and techniques (e.g., how to brief a case) that might be useful for first-year students.

Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts

Author: George C. Christie
Publisher: West Academic
ISBN: 0314266941
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Law

The Fifth Edition of Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts continues the tradition of using, as much as possible, minimally edited cases so that the book can serve as a vehicle for teaching first-year students the essential techniques of case analysis and legal method. The entire book has been modified to accommodate the many developments in the law of torts since the Fourth Edition was published in 2004. For example, the basic chapters on negligence and causation recognize and discuss the now finally adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical & Emotional Harm and the recent case law expanding liability for loss of a chance. The duty section has also undergone a major overhaul to reflect the conceptual framework by which courts think about duty and to elucidate the pervasive role of foreseeability in courts' duty decisions. The Materials on Product's Liability capture the many recent developments in that area; and the materials on dignitary harms reflect the increasing interaction between tort law and constitutional law as well as the expanding potential reach of international human rights conventions. Finally the Fifth Edition retains its comprehensive coverage of the entire field of torts so as to give instructors, all of whom are having to accommodate a curriculum that has cut back on the number of credit hours assigned to torts, the widest possible choice of subjects on which they may wish to concentrate in the limited time they have available.

This classic civil procedure casebook begins with a detailed overview, thus providing students with a solid and complete grounding in the subject, before proceeding to in-depth coverage of the major problem areas.

The twelfth edition retains prior editions' range and depth of coverage, while reflecting a thorough rewriting for improved flow and clarity. It covers major new cases on general and specific personal jurisdiction, pleading, and summary judgment, and it introduces new materials on the res judicata effect of statute-of-limitations dismissals and the theory of burdens and standards of proof. It also fully incorporates the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which affect such important topics as discovery. Finally, it brings a proven "Stories" approach to the presentation of the major cases' backgrounds.

The Sixth Edition of this highly-regarded casebook continues its innovative emphasis on the connection between the law of trusts and estates and the changing American family.

ISBN: 1634608186
Release Date: 2017-07-18
Genre:

This version is newly streamlined for professors who teach a four-unit course or who want to cover fewer pages per day yet retain complete coverage. This edition tracks the standard edition but pares chapters down to their essentials. It cuts an additional 300 pages of cases and notes, and occasionally trims cases to a shorter format. This edition also omits chapters concerning economic and dignitary torts, and some material concerning alternatives to tort law. The result is a substantially shorter casebook that nevertheless provides the coverage most teachers want.
