In each of the first three editions of the bestselling Law 101, Jay Feinman gave readers an upbeat and vivid examination of the American legal system. Since the third edition was published in 2010, much has happened: several key Supreme Court cases have been decided, we've seen sensational criminal trials, and the legal system has had to account for the latest developments in Internet law. This fully updated fourth edition of Law 101 accounts for all this and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To accomplish this, Feinman brings in the most noteworthy, infamous, and often outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is learning legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, though, is that Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law is can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system. New to this edition: Featured analysis of: -the Obamacare case -Citizens United -the DOMA decision -the Trayvon Martin case As well as recent legal developments pertaining to: -online contracting -mortgages -police investigations -criminal sentencing

This is a book that provides a preliminary examination of seventeen different subjects covered in law schools across the United States. Each chapter offers a succinct and organized review of the topic and begins with a detailed outline of the subject. Expert legal academics, drawn from a number of outstanding American law schools, authored each of the different chapters. The opening chapter of the book provides an overview of the legal system in the United States, and offers comparison with a civil code system. The book covers basic first year courses like Contracts, Torts, Criminal Law, Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, and Property. It also examines typical bar-type courses such as Wills and Trusts, Evidence, and Family Law. Finally, there are chapters on some "hot topics," such as Intellectual Property. The final chapter of the book examines the practice of law in the United States. Overview of U.S. Law is intended for students who are considering attending law school, those who plan to participate in an LL.M. program in the United States, and those outside the U.S. who seek an overview of the legal system. The chapters were designed with foreign lawyers and international students in mind. This book is part of a project, which the editors affectionately refer to as "The U.S. Law Project." The actual project includes lectures on each of the subjects covered in the book, and the video lectures are presented by the same individual who authored the chapter in the book.
