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.

Constitutional Rights: Cases in Context, Second Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates. By providing both cases and context, it conveys the competing narratives that all lawyers ought to know and all constitutional practitioners need to know. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court’s opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases. Key Benefits: Revised doctrinal areas with newer cases. Updated background contextual material to reflect current scholarship. A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding. Related cases are grouped together into “assignments” and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic. A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.

Human Rights and Intellectual Property

Mapping the Global Interface

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.

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. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

This new casebook rests on a straightforward premise: The First Amendment can be viewed as history, as policy, and as theory, but from a lawyer's perspective, it is above all law-albeit a special kind of law. One thing that is special is that the governing texts have receded into the background. The law is the cases, and the cases are the law. Close analysis of precedent is therefore the principal tool of argumentation and adjudication. The purpose of this casebook is to help students to learn the law in a way that will enable them to use it in the service of clients. Several features of the book promote this goal. The cases are edited with a relatively light hand. Notes and questions provide guidance in working with the opinions. The structure of the book- closely tracking the structure that the Supreme Court has imposed- helps to reinforce learning. Non-case materials (including drafts and memoranda from the Justices' private papers) are used to shed light on what was established by existing precedents and how a new decision changes (or does not change) the law. By giving primacy to the Justices' won words and the Court's own doctrinal structure, the book offers maximum flexibility for teachers to place their own imprint on the course. The accompanying Teacher's Manual offers extensive guidance for taking advantage of the breadth-and depth-of coverage offered by the casebook. The authors have included three different sample syllabi. The running commentary fully analyzes the cases and suggests possible directions for class discussion. The authors also provide answers to the questions that appear in the notes and identify the origins and sources for the Problems.

How should students begin their legal education? Professor Peter Strauss's innovative materials build on a Columbia Law School commitment reaching back to Karl Llewellyn's Bramble Bush -- that legal education should start with orientation to the materials lawyers use and the institutions they deal with.In general, Legal Methods provides an introduction to the processes and the skills necessary in the professional use of case law and legislation, and to the development of American legal institutions. The casebook starts with materials from the first decades of American history, with relatively simple common law litigation, statutes and institutions, and with a country having to fashion its law for itself, largely through its courts. As the country industrializes, judicial styles change, statutes and their interpretation become more and more important, administrative agencies emerge. The materials largely explore the developing law on the related questions of product liability and

Essay after essay in this fascinating book explores the statutory and historical setting of the cases discussed, rather than mere doctrine, examining in detail lawyers' judgments and tactics. Many use recently revealed papers of Supreme Court Justices to discuss often surprising elements of the decision by the Court. Students can learn a good deal about the handling of these disputes at the administrative level, before they ever get to court -- a perspective essential to understanding the field, but hard to pick up from the reported cases. Attention is paid to the ways in which many of these decisions affected future developments, with primary focus on context and on understanding the ways in which administrative disputes develop, and the roles that lawyers play in developing them.
