This text has become the leading casebook on mental health law because of its wide-ranging, in-depth coverage of how the legal system responds to the challenges posed by persons with mental disorders. Continuing the tradition established in previous editions, the book features a sophisticated interdisciplinary treatment of the law and literature relating to the regulation and potential liability of the mental health professions, the government's authority to deprive people with a mental disorder of their liberty and property and limits on that authority, and the government's efforts and obligation to provide assistance to people with a mental disorder and to protect them from discrimination. The content of the new edition is immensely enhanced by the addition of two new authors, Thomas L. Hafemeister, J.D., Ph.D., a law professor and psychologist who has taught at numerous law schools, including most recently the University of Virginia, and Douglas Mossman, M.D., a Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. They join Christopher Slobogin, J.D., LL.M., the Milton Underwood Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University Law School, who was a co-author on previous editions of the book, and Ralph Reisner, Professor of Law, Emeritus, University of Illinois-Champaign College of Law, one of the initial authors of this casebook. Chapter One of the book provides a primer on mental disorders, mental health treatment and the professionals who provide it, and the complicated mechanisms for financing mental health care. The remaining four chapters of Part I of the book examine the law regulating the mental health professions, including administrative licensing, malpractice law, informed consent doctrine, and confidentiality and privilege rules (including a detailed treatment of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)). Part II explores how the law affects the liberty and property interests of people with a mental disorder in five chapters entitled "Mental Health Professionals and Expertise," "Mental Disorder and Criminal Law," "Civil Commitment," "Competency Determinations," and "Post-Commitment Issues." Part III consists of two chapters that discuss the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Social Security law, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Fair Housing Act (FHA). Finally, an appendix contains updated diagnostic information from the newly published DSM-5.

This is the first major casebook devoted to international banking law. It examines cutting edge legal and regulatory developments in international banking law, as focused through the business and structural means by which banks conduct international activities--the business of international banking. In doing so, the book highlights the fact that, as international banking has grown and increasingly plays a key role in the international economy, so have practical and policy concerns arisen that have caused an increasing need and support for international banking laws and regulation. The book presents the practical aspects of legal issues that arise in the most common international banking transactions, including the legal role of international banks in letters of credit transactions, international loan syndications and international deposit transactions--so called "ringfencing" of deposits. In so doing, the book seeks to engage the student to understand the respective roles, responsibilities and liabilities of banks associated with these transactions, and the related regulatory concerns reflected in banking laws, regulations and policies. This book also explores international banking regulation, including an analysis of the international principles of bank supervision and the evolving work and influence of the Basel Committee on Bank Regulation and Supervision and regulation of U.S. banks in foreign markets. Significantly, it examines critical international banking legal issues and policies in the context of the recent global financial crisis, government "bailouts" and global financial regulatory reform initiatives responding to the crisis, the causes of the global financial crisis, government reactions and perceived weaknesses in the international financial regulatory system, and regulatory reform covering the Dodd-Frank Act, G-10 and Basel Committee reform initiatives. The book also examines the regulation of foreign banking organizations in the U.S. under the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation K and International Banking Act, Foreign Bank Supervision and Enhancement Act and related laws and regulations. Also, the book analyzes current legal and regulatory developments in anti-terrorism, money laundering, and embargo laws as relates to international banking operations. Finally, the book covers the "single rulebook" banking regulation of the European Monetary Union--the first transnational regulation of international banking. The book also presents emerging ethical considerations in international banking law practice, and the implications of relevant ethical guidance by the American Bar Association and the International Bar Association.
