A highly flexible casebook focusing on core concepts and central controversies in evidence law. With well-selected and tightly edited cases, this casebook offers thoroughly up-to-date coverage of technical and jurisprudential developments in scientific proof. Specifically, the fourth edition contains a dozen new cases while also dropping older material made redundant by the additions. The author has replaced the Supreme Court s confrontation decisions in Davis v. Washington and Michigan v. Bryant with the Court s 2015 decision in Clark v. Ohio. The Court s 2012 decision in Williams v. Illinois, regarding confrontation and expert witnesses, has replaced State v. Lewis. And Warger v. Shauers, the Court s 2014 decision applying Federal Rule of Evidence 606(b), has pushed aside Tanner v. United States and People v. Fleiss.

Evidence: A Structured Approach offers a unique, structured approach facilitates learning and motivates students to prepare for class. One Federal Rule of Evidence introduces each section, followed by text explaining the background, rationale, and details of the rule. The text includes numerous diagrams as visual aids to learning and short transcripts that illustrate how the rules are applied in the courtroom. The authors emphasize the rules over cases, but include edited versions of some judicial opinions, including the seminal cases that every lawyer should know. The heart of the "structured approach" is the Questions for Classroom Discussion, which follow the narrative explanation for each rule. These questions consist of simple hypothetical cases allowing for a step-by-step analysis of each rule. Because students know what will be the focus of class discussion, they quickly learn that preparation pays off. The book's website allows students to download the questions directly into their notes before class, freeing students to spend more time listening and thinking while in class.

Unlike other casebooks that typically seek to tackle the entirety of Constitutional Law and are organized from the perspective of the constitutional scholar—a top-down approach that encompasses (and even emphasizes) theoretical and philosophical perspectives and debates—Modern Constitutional Law: Cases, Problems and Practice is organized from the ground-up: rather than assuming students will one day be making constitutional arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court (or teaching Constitutional Law), this book assumes students will more likely be making constitutional arguments before a state or federal trial court. And so it focuses on those areas of Constitutional Law that are likely to be relevant to the practice areas in which most law students will work after law school—small or solo firms that count individuals and small businesses as their clientele, or the offices of state agencies, district attorneys or public defenders. These attorneys by and large are not addressing issues regarding, say, the theoretical underpinnings of judicial review; rather, they are seeking, for example, to challenge on due process grounds procedures put in place by the local school board, or on equal protection grounds a regulatory scheme that appears to single out a readily identifiable class of citizens for differential treatment. Key Features: • Narrower in scope than other casebooks, the book is more manageable for 3- and 4- credit courses • A focus on doctrine rather than theory • Emphasis on modern and contemporary cases rather than historical ones (although landmark cases, such as McCulloch v. Maryland, The Prize Cases, Lochner v. New York, Plessey v. Ferguson, to name a few, are also included) • Coverage focused on the issues most relevant to the types of practice they will enter upon graduation, such as due process, equal protection, and First Amendment • Inclusion of cases from the lower federal and state courts, courts in which most students are most likely to one day find themselves litigating constitutional issues • Inclusion of a generous number of case excerpts are generous, which helps students to develop their ability to read legal texts closely and extract useful information, rather than, like many casebooks, relying on numerous Notes to cover the jurisprudence in a particular area • Most chapters include at least one Problem to provide students an opportunity to apply the doctrines learned • Each chapter contains one or more “Practice Perspectives” that present the facts, background and resolution of actual constitutional law cases, challenging students to explain the results based on what they have learned in the chapter • Extremely up-to-date, incorporating cases from the 2015-16 Supreme Court term, including Fisher v. University of Texas (Fisher II) and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellersted

This highly efficient casebook offers materials that are thorough and yet brief enough that the subject can be covered in a three- or four- credit course. Each chapter covers an article of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Within the chapters and sections, the materials follow the sequence of the Rules. The Fourth Edition is an update of this popular, concise casebook. It includes the important 2006 decision of the Supreme Court in Davis v. Washington, plus all important recent decisions. These materials are meant to be self-sufficient when accompanied by a current copy of the Rules, and, where appropriate, the rules of a state.

Cases, Problems, and Materials on Contracts is distinguished among other texts by its excellent organization and thorough coverage of the basic themes of contract law. The accessible, straightforward text begins with clear introduction to each section or concept. Carefully selected cases have been tightly edited for the best effect. Using an engaging problem-oriented approach, students learn contract doctrine by applying their knowledge to short, well-conceived hypotheticals. Offering a flexible organization, the book starts with “Offer and Acceptance” and moves on to “Consideration,” however, the book is designed so courses can easily start with “Consideration” or “Remedies.” Its flexibility allows for use in courses in which professors are required to teach sales, yet can also be adapted to avoid teaching the UCC. A manageable length accounts for the book being used in courses of 4, 5, and 6-hour length. The authors have worked closely on all chapters to deliver a seamless revision to this popular text. Key Features of the New Edition: The seventh edition begins with a new chapter containing an expanded introduction to the study of contracts law. Every chapter now includes new introductory material All chapters, with the exception of chapter one, end with an “Assessment” section, which consists of multiple choice questions and answers, designed to help the students review the material just learned.

Civil Procedure is written by one of the leading voices on Procedure, Stephen Yeazell, who for this Ninth Edition is joined by his colleague Joanna Schwartz. Yeazell and Schwartz employ a pedagogical style that offers flexible organization at a manageable length. The book gives students a working knowledge of the procedural system and introduces the techniques of statutory analysis. The cases selected are factually interesting and do not involve substantive matters beyond the experience of first-year students. The problems following the cases present real-life issues. Finally, the book incorporates a number of dissenting opinions to dispel the notion that most procedural disputes present clear-cut issues.
