This authoritative casebook presents a comprehensive treatment of the doctrinal basis of administrative law that students need to know to practice competently and also a substantial development of the scholarly literature that has, from many perspectives, critiqued the existing law. The 11th edition continues the tradition of offering instructors a rich theoretical, historical and political context for the cases. At the same time, recognizing changing pedagogical demand, the book offers a leaner presentation of many topics and more cues for helping students navigate the book.

Human Rights and Intellectual Property

Mapping the Global Interface

Author: Laurence R. Helfer,Graeme W. Austin

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139496913

Category: Law

Page: N.A

This book explores the interface between intellectual property and human rights law and policy. The relationship between these two fields has captured the attention of governments, policymakers, and activist communities in a diverse array of international and domestic political and judicial venues. These actors often raise human rights arguments as counterweights to the expansion of intellectual property in areas including freedom of expression, public health, education, privacy, agriculture, and the rights of indigenous peoples. At the same time, creators and owners of intellectual property are asserting a human rights justification for the expansion of legal protections. This book explores the legal, institutional, and political implications of these competing claims: by offering a framework for exploring the connections and divergences between these subjects; by identifying the pathways along which jurisprudence, policy, and political discourse are likely to evolve; and by serving as an educational resource for scholars, activists, and students.

Animal law is, in its simplest (and broadest) sense, a combination of statutory and decisional law in which the nature -- legal, social, or biological -- of non-human animals is an important factor. The fifth edition is updated significantly, while continuing to present a cohesive format that touches on many areas in which animals affect legal doctrines, case law, and legislative direction. Because animal law is not a traditional legal field, the book is largely framed according to traditional legal headings such as tort, contract, criminal and constitutional law. Each chapter sets out cases and commentary where animal law continues to develop its own doctrine. An important chapter on the commercial use of animals, introduced in the third edition, has been further updated with recent cases and statutory developments covering the significant areas of agriculture and biomedical research.

This unique coursebook has a number of distinguishing features. First, unlike traditional casebooks with their primary focus on case materials, the text presents a limited number of leading cases, coupled with extensive textual and note material reviewing existing doctrine and exploring unanswered legal and policy issues. Second, the text is current on cutting-edge issues while still paying attention to the fundamentals. Third, the text is both compact and comprehensive. This text aims to be state-of-the-art in the field of complex litigation and is designed for use in ether two- or three-unit courses. In addition to structural issues, such as Internet jurisdiction, the use of "minimal diversity" as a basis for federal jurisdiction, and mechanisms for the coordination of overlapping federal and state litigation, the text contains in-depth discussion of: The most recent developments in class action practice under Federal Rule 23; appointment and compensation of lead and class counsel; operation of the multidistrict statute; choice of law issues in multijurisdictional cases; and preclusion issues raised by complex cases, including limits on the use of non-party preclusion under the Supreme Court's decision in Taylor v. Sturgell. The text also examines core aspects of the complex litigation process itself, including judicial management of the pre-trial process, the conduct and control of discovery with a focus on the burgeoning field of electronic discovery including metadata, and mechanisms for disposing of cases without trial, including comprehensive treatment of the Supreme Court's recent decisions facilitating dismissal of cases on the pleadings, and the increasing prevalence of arbitration and waivers of class arbitration.
