The second edition of this casebook introduces foreign students, most trained in code-based law, to the unique American mix of common law, statutory materials, and constitutional law. Strongly emphasizing American legal methods and the influence of American history and culture on law in the United States, the book provides a rich array of teaching resources covering both public and private law. Following introductory chapters that cover the relations between important sources of law (common law, statutes, and constitutional law, including the hierarchy of various forms of law), succeeding chapters cover the major topics in constitutional law, civil procedure and jurisdiction, and private law (contracts, torts, and corporations). The book is especially appropriate for schools attempting to meet the new Master of Laws teaching requirements of the N.Y. Bar, and its emphasis on legal methods also makes it suitable for assignment in college-level courses.

This pedagogically innovative book is the only law school case book focused on human rights advocacy in the United States. It illuminates a range of both hot topics and persistent theoretical and doctrinal issues while equipping students to thoughtfully engage these tools in their own practice of law.

Skills exercises introduce practice-oriented approaches to engaging human rights-based strategies, including practice before international treaty bodies as well as domestic policymakers. Additionally, the appendices offer the text of relevant human rights treaties. Appropriate for introductory and advanced seminars, as well as clinical and other experiential offerings, the materials engage students on a remarkable range of issues, including immigration, rights of indigenous peoples, racially discriminatory policing, and right to housing. Chapters also explore fundamental issues of federalism, sovereignty, judicial review, and legal ethics.

This book is designed to introduce students to the highlights of the first-year curriculum at a U.S. law school. The first chapter provides an overview of the U.S. legal system. The seven chapters that follow focus on basic foundational subjects: constitutional law, civil procedure, contracts, torts, property, criminal procedure, and criminal law, each in a separate chapter. Although the first chapter consists entirely of articles and other commentary, the other seven chapters consist mainly of edited court decisions. All of the chapters contain notes and questions, highlighting important issues for discussion and providing citations to cases, articles, and other materials for more in-depth study. First, it is designed for international students who are attending a U.S. law school to pursue an LL.M degree or an S.J.D. degree. This book gives such students the opportunity to take an intensive course on U.S. law, thus enabling them to learn the fundamental concepts before taking upper-division courses. Second, this book is designed for international students who want to learn about U.S. law but who are not planning to attend a U.S. law school. U.S. law professors can teach the course in foreign law schools using this text. Also, foreign professors who have been trained at a U.S. law school can teach U.S. law at their home institutions. Third, the book is designed for undergraduate students who are considering law school or who otherwise want to learn basic legal concepts. Such a course could be taught by U.S. law professors at their undergraduate institutions. All such students share a common desire to learn the basics of U.S. law in one course. And all will benefit not only from the substantive materials but also from the experience of learning core subject areas.

Traditionally relegated because of political pressure and public expectations, courts in Latin America are increasingly asserting a stronger role in public and political discussions. This casebook takes account of this phenomenon, by offering a rigorous and up-to-date discussion of constitutional adjudication in Latin America in recent decades. Bringing to the forefront the development of constitutional law by Latin American courts in various subject matters, the volume aims to highlight a host of creative arguments and solutions that judges in the region have offered. The authors review and discuss innovative case law in light of the countries’ social, political and legal context. Each chapter is devoted to a discussion of a particular area of judicial review, from freedom of expression to social and economic rights, from the internalization of human rights law to judicial checks on the economy, from gender and reproductive rights to transitional justice. The book thus provides a very useful tool to scholars, students and litigants alike.

State and Federal Administrative Law, Fourth Edition, contains thorough coverage of administrative law issues in both federal and state contexts. Although it can be used for a course that focuses primarily on federal law, its dual coverage allows instructors to highlight the insights that can emerge from a comparison between federal and state approaches to the same issues. The book exposes students to a broad sample of the federal, state, and local administrative agencies that they will encounter in their professional lives. The book also contains many short, concrete problems that enable instructors to make use of the problem method. A comprehensive teacher's manual accompanies the book.

The Fourth Edition is updated to take account of new developments in the law, new regulations, and new cases. The most comprehensive updates are found in Chapter Four on the Clean Air Act and Chapter Five on the Clean Water Act. Chapter Four has been reorganized to provide professors and students with a new comprehensive section on climate change, including the EPA's many regulatory efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions from both mobile and stationary sources, critical U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and an overview of the Clean Power Plan, which is in litigation as the Fourth Edition goes to press. Chapter 5 includes a new approach to the "waters of the United States" element of Clean Water Act jurisdiction. This section now summarizes key U.S. Supreme Court interpretations from Riverside Bayview Homes, SWANCC, and Rapanos, then provides an overview of both the June 2015 "waters of the United States" rule and the litigation challenging that rule, emphasizing the key issues. Chapter Five now also includes an expanded discussion of stormwater and the two new U.S. Supreme Court cases on Clean Water Act jurisdiction over stormwater. As was true in the Third Edition, the Fourth Edition continues to increase the number of "The Rest of the Story" notes after cases. These notes trace the context and the aftermath of cases and their continuing implications. In addition, by Fall 2016, adopters of the Fourth Edition will have access to fully updated Power Point slides and a new Teachers Manual with links to videos and other teaching materials for use in class.

This new edition of the popular textbook on the law of oil and gas focuses first on ownership of the resource. Chapter 1 examines the common law of oil and gas ownership and the remedies that protect and restrict ownership rights. Chapter 2 focuses on the foundational business relationship used to develop oil and gas in the United States--the oil and gas "lease." Chapter 3 examines common problems encountered in oil and gas conveyancing. Chapter 4 explores legislative and regulatory responses to problems created by common-law ownership concepts, focusing on oil and gas conservation law. Chapter 5 examines the body of law designed to regulate environmental impacts by following the oil and gas development process chronologically, from land acquisition to abandonment. Chapter 6 considers transactions other than leasing and conveying that are frequently encountered in the industry, including assignments, farmouts, operating agreements, drilling contracts, and gas sales contracts. Finally, Chapter 7 examines the complex body of law that must be considered when oil and gas development is taking place on property owned by the federal, state, or tribal governments. Many instructors will build the basic oil and gas law course around Chapters 1 through 4 and save Chapters 5 through 7 for advanced courses. The book is completely updated, reflecting new case law in the traditional oil and gas states and evolving case law in eastern states. The book is further updated to cover shale oil and gas resources.

The Concise Edition is a stream-lined version for a four unit course. It omits note materials and cases and a few principal cases that are included in the longer version to under-score or elaborate upon the key principles in each unit. The Ninth Edition continues the approach of earlier editions in emphasizing rich, full-bodied versions of the principal cases, a functionalist approach to the problems of contract law, and analytical notes on such issues as the differences between classical and modern contract law and the role of the limits of cognition in contract law. The new edition includes a great number of new principal cases, including extensive coverage of pertinent materials in the new restatement of restitution and up to date materials on "rolling contracts."
