Now there is a way to teach a comprehensive yet efficient course in employment law. By presenting a thematically and organizationally coherent view of employment law through the lens of private ordering, this refreshing new casebook avoids overwhelming students while enabling instructors to cover a wide range of content. The authors make their book accessible and teachable by: organizing the book around the theme of private ordering -- the rights and duties that flow between parties in an agreement -- and the laws that seek to balance contractual freedoms and market forces with countervailing social interests using this framework to comprehensively cover varied topics taught in the employment law survey course providing thorough thematic and doctrinal coverage of each area presenting cases that are rigorously edited for brevity but include detailed discussions of the facts using brief, accessible notes and questions to address the cases and stimulate critical thinking supplying problems and exercises that require students to apply the doctrine in a particular context and to think creatively about how to protect the interests of workers or their firms developing students' transactional lawyering skills -- such as planning, drafting, advising, and negotiating -- in the context of the employment relation The casebook is part of a complete teaching package that includes: a comprehensive Teacher's Manual that explains the selection of materials, discusses how the authors present the materials to their students, lists the questions they ask students, and provides answers and suggested comments for the problems and exercises in the book a helpful website -- updated monthly -- where professors and students will find newspaper and magazine stories, sample practitioner materials, new cases, updates, additional problems, PowerPoint slides, and employment law examinations

The first casebook covering both international and comparative labor and employment law is characterized by its authorship by prolific, respected scholars, all of whom have taught law outside the United States. A solid conceptual framework compares national laws dealing with individual collective employment rights, including antidiscrimination law and privacy law, and considers the systems used to resolve labor and employment disputes in the context of international labor law. A sweeping coverage of international labor law considers the International Labour Organization, NAFTA and other bilateral trade agreements that include labor standards, and the European Union. In addition, The Global Workplace explores transnational corporations' self-regulatory efforts (or codes of conduct,) and the mechanisms for pursuing international labor standards in United States courts. Comparisons are drawn among the laws of the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, Japan and India. Exploring the similarities and the differences among various approaches to the employment relationship allows students to better understand and evaluate the approach each country takes, and helps them develop a normative approach to labor and employment law. National legal materials are presented within historical and cultural context.

Now accompanied by a Teacher's Manual for the first time, RACE, RACISM, AND AMERICAN LAW, Fourth Edition, is a penetrating and provocative analysis of the role of race in American law and society by the noted author and the originator of critical race theory. This scrupulously revised casebook now offers: an appendix of lightly edited historical and contemporary cases for instructors who prefer a fuller case treatment expanded coverage that includes Latino and Asian minorities commentary on the Supreme Court's conception of a 'color-blind' society and its effects on voting, employment, and affirmative action discussion of Professor Lani Guinier's views on proportional representation consideration of the disproportionately high percentage of blacks and Hispanics in American prisons an examination of the role of the media in propagating societal fear of minorities new cases in employment discrimination analysis of the impact of the technological age on workers with minimal skills Bell uses a wide range of materials to convey important points: Interdisciplinary excerpts from historical, sociological, and psychological publications provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the subject. In each chapter, creative hypothetical exercises in consciousness-raising help students realize the insidious nature and complex consequences of racism in the United States. Seminal cases from the annals of history show the relevance of past events to contemporary race relations. Original critical race theory supplies essential perspective while allowing students to reach their own conclusions.
