Now in its third edition, California School Law is the only comprehensive source discussing how federal and state law affects the day-to-day operation of the state's traditional public, charter, and private schools. While the book is comprehensive, the authors have written it for a broad audience. California School Law has become a coveted desk-top reference for administrators, governing board members, school attorneys, union leaders, and policymakers. It also has been widely adopted as a classroom textbook in educational administration and education law classes. The first chapter provides an explanation of the legal framework within which California schooling takes place and key players at the state, district, and school level. Ensuing chapters examine student attendance and truancy, curriculum law, employment law, teacher and student rights of expression, the school and religion, students with disabilities, student discipline, privacy and search and seizure, and legal liability in both state and federal court. Also included are chapters on unions and collective bargaining, educational finance issues, and racial and gender discrimination. Appendices provide a glossary of legal terminology, an explanation of how to find and read legislative enactments and judicial decisions, and a list of sources for accessing law. The book's table of contents is included on this website. Law never stands still. To keep current with changing legal precedent, the authors maintain a cumulative update for the third edition at www.californiaschoollaw.org.

This casebook focuses on California law and, with respect to trust material, the focus is on traditional trust doctrines, with the more salient California doctrines discussed where appropriate. California Wills and Trusts has numerous examples throughout, as well as ''notes'' that are often combinations of comments, examples, and broad questions based on note material. In addition, the analytical material covered in the earlier chapters is supplemented with dedicated problems. All pertinent statutory material is included in the text, so there is no need for a statutory supplement. The authors bring an interesting blend of backgrounds to the material -- Wendel contributes a traditional academic approach and Popovich incorporates his academic experience and hands-on practice in the field. The unique blend of theoretical and practitioner-oriented note material aids student learning and application.​

The Sixth Edition of this highly-regarded casebook continues its innovative emphasis on the connection between the law of trusts and estates and the changing American family. The Sixth Edition incorporates the most recent uniform acts from the Uniform Law Commission and the Third Restatements of the American Law Institute, and discusses the very latest "hot" topics, including trust protectors, directed trusts, trust decanting, family offices, and donor standing to enforce charitable trusts. The Sixth Edition also incorporates new important cases, such as the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Hillman v. Maretta (2013). The authors of this book have long been at the forefront of law reform in trusts and estates, and this tradition continues under the authorship of Thomas Gallanis, who is the executive director of the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts. He was also an associate reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts and has been the reporter of two uniform acts, most recently the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act (completed 2013). The Sixth Edition emphasizes problems and questions to facilitate classroom discussion and analysis. Among many other things, the book teaches doctrine and policy, planning and drafting, case analysis and statutory interpretation. The detailed teacher's manual includes extensive syllabi and notes for classroom teaching.
