Product Description

The second edition of this casebook introduces foreign students, most trained in code-based law, to the unique American mix of common law, statutory materials, and constitutional law. Strongly emphasizing American legal methods and the influence of American history and culture on law in the United States, the book provides a rich array of teaching resources covering both public and private law. Following introductory chapters that cover the relations between important sources of law (common law, statutes, and constitutional law, including the hierarchy of various forms of law), succeeding chapters cover the major topics in constitutional law, civil procedure and jurisdiction, and private law (contracts, torts, and corporations). The book is especially appropriate for schools attempting to meet the new Master of Laws teaching requirements of the N.Y. Bar, and its emphasis on legal methods also makes it suitable for assignment in college-level courses.
