Product Description

Widely-respected federal courts scholar Laura Little has authored a much-needed, approachable, and practical study guide to what is considered a challenging and abstract subject. Examples & Explanations: Federal Courts grounds the material for students by providing brief textual introductions to doctrines, as well as examples and analytical answers.

  • Covers new federal jurisdiction issues (Gunn v. Minton, Mims v. Arrow Financial), most recent Roberts Court standing decisions ( Clapper v. Amnesty International, and the same-sex marriage decisions), refinement of the mootness and political questions doctrines, crucial habeas corpus developments, and broad-ranging changes implicating class actions
  • Includes developments omitted from other books such as the Class Action Fairness Act, federal common law (global warming issues), and the Alien Tort Statute
  • Strong authorship united with Examples & Explanations pedagogy
  • Brief accounts of law followed by concrete examples and explanations help to reinforce and give substance to key rules and concepts
