This casebook is designed for foreign lawyers and law students who wish to familiarize themselves with the U.S. legal system. It discusses, among other things, the legal culture of the U.S., briefing cases, the common law, civil procedure, trial techniques, and several highly charged constitutional law issues. Topics are arranged in a coherent sequence, each one building upon its predecessor, in order to give the reader a broad, yet rich, overview of the U.S. legal system. The U.S. legal system is studied in context. For example, pleadings from the Paula Corbin Jones v. William Jefferson Clinton lawsuit are used as examples when discussing civil procedure. And, there is a sample moot court problem included in the casebook, which gives foreign lawyers and law students an opportunity to test their trial skills. The author has succeeded in his objective to compress three years of U.S. legal education into one casebook.

They deftly convey the the human drama of courtroom trials by strategically weaving transcript excerpts throughout the text. The new edition contains focused presentation of modern controversies in law and policy, including: products liability; scientific proof; informed consent; and a stimulating collection of classic and contemporary materials on compensation plans, including the September 11th Victims' Compensation Fund.The section on duty and proximate cause, chock-full of interesting cases, presents a flexible framework for a variety of approaches to the topic. In addition, stimulating materials on medical malpractice appear in several sections of the book. Another highlight of the book is its materials on current problems in toxic torts, including issues of scientific proof. Tort and Injury Law presents many opportunities for selection to suit the preferences of a wide range of torts teachers. After building a backbone for the book out of fundamental concepts pivotal to the beginning lawyer, Shapo and Peltz weave threads of law and economics, moral philosophy, and feminist jurisprudence around that spine. The comprehensive teacher's manual contains up-to-date references for case law, scholarly articles and The Third Restatement. Besides providing professors with a variety of course-planning materials, the teacher's manual also contains a large number of exam problems.

The revised Student Workbook (purchased separately) is updated to complement the fifth edition with flow charts, vocabulary lists, problems and structured exercises to help students understand legal doctrines, case briefing, and synthesis. Students can use the workbook independently or exercises can be used in class discussions. The fifth edition augments the cultural material with notes and questions showing the social contexts for specific contract doctrines. Many sections are shortened and reorganized for ease of use in 3-, 4-, or 5-credit courses, while UCC coverage is maintained for those courses designed to include sales law.

Concise Introduction to Property Law is first and foremost a casebook, designed to expose first year law students to the rich heritage of American Property Law through the study of court decisions. Instructors will find many of the familiar cases used in most Property textbooks, as well as many new ones. The notes in all chapters not only point out legal developments and additional cases, but also include substantial detail on the historical and social context in which the principal cases arose. The notes also provide a glimpse into the lives of the parties to the cases, some of whom are famous and many of whom are not. The book also has a definite inter-state comparative law perspective. This is primarily manifested by special attention to cases arising in the state of Hawaii, the one American jurisdiction whose property history departs from the national experience in dramatic ways.
