Contracts: Cases, Discussion, and Problems, Fourth Edition is known for its strikingly clear, straightforward text that illuminates cases as well as concepts and theory. The book focuses on modern cases to expose students to contemporary contract law, but it also includes many important or iconic older cases. The cases are set in context by extensive author-written explanatory text. Insightful questions draw attention to difficult and crucial aspects of the law and prompt vigorous class discussion. Numerous problems, ranging from simple to complex, supplement cases and introduce topics taught most effectively through problems. The casebook’s traditional organization begins with formation and then corresponds to the sequence followed by the Restatement (2nd) of Contracts and treatises. Its concise, efficient presentation results in an optimum length for the course. Procedural issues are highlighted when presented by the cases and transactional issues such as drafting, client counseling, and negotiation are raised through the use of questions and small exercises throughout the text. Strengthening the text’s focus on contemporary methods of contracting, modern issues in standard contracts are explored along with contracts entered into electronically. International and comparative material offers alternative approaches for students to consider, such as those taken by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) and the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.

Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, Sixth Edition, features a mix of lightly-edited classic and contemporary cases that stresses current contract doctrine along with the essential lawyering skill of case analysis—how to sift through the facts of the case to discern the prevailing rules and theory. Randy Barnett and Nate Oman’s innovative text introduces each case and provides the historical background of the iconic cases that make the study of contract law engaging. Study Guide questions help students identify salient issues as they read each case. Judicial biographies of each judge provides additional context. Key Features of the New Edition: The 6th Edition has been edited to make it even more modular and therefore easier for professors to select which doctrines to cover. The introductory materials have been shortened to permit a speedier entry to whichever basic doctrine the professor chooses to begin with. A new section on public policy defenses has been added. Recent developments involving arbitration agreements in the wake of the Supreme Court’s AT&T Mobility case are also covered. In addition, roughly a dozen new cases have been substituted, chosen for their interesting facts or their proven pedagogical usefulness. As always, every effort is made to provide students with background materials on the litigation, such as new judicial biographies and excerpts from recently published scholarship dealing with the cases covered. New cases include: Jordan v. Knafel Arnold Porter v. Fuqua Industries Nguyen v. Barnes & Noble Inc. Also, in keeping with the book’s focus on the “classic” cases we have included some iconic cases missing from earlier editions, including: Masterson v. Sine Security Stove & Manfacturing Co. v. American Railway Express Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus Store Lawrence v. Fox Harris v. Watson

From a newly expanded authorship team, Criminal Law Case Studies & Controversies, 4E eschews traditional reliance on judicial opinions in favor of an innovative and dynamic method of criminal law instruction centered on statutory interpretation and case studies. Examination of real-world problems allows first-year law students to not only develop familiarity with criminal law doctrine necessary for potential careers as prosecutors or defense attorneys, but also hone crucial skills for general lawyering. With a revised layout of statutory and discussion materials, the text is now more streamlined and accessible to students. Further, provocative case studies provide a solid background for engaging class discussion and challenge students to tackle applying doctrine in real-world situations. Features: Authorship team expanded to include two young and well-respected criminal law scholars: Michael Cahill and Shima Baradaran Baughman. Additional and updated case studies and discussion material informed by the professors’ teaching experiences and designed to reinforce issues at the forefront of modern criminal law. Revised layout of statutory and discussion materials to make the text more streamlined and accessible to students. Expanded discussion of issues of modern professorial and student interest, including police use of defensive force, defensive killing of domestic abusers, dangerous but blameless offenders, principles of statutory interpretation, and principles for the distribution of criminal liability. Completely revamped sections on theft offenses and possession offenses, and a very substantially revised section on sexual offenses.

Civil Procedure: Cases and Problems, Fifth Edition covers all topics in the first-year canon of civil procedure, and some topics in advanced litigation classes (e.g., class actions, appeals). The casebook is organized with the reality and complexities of civil litigation in mind, and follows the litigation sequence, from pleading through preclusion. Each chapter takes a practical as well as analytical approach, through (a) a series of Supreme Court and lower court opinions, (b) notes preceding and following those opinions intended to explain the underlying doctrines and principles behind them, and (c) problems intended to assess and refine students understanding of doctrines and their rationales. Ultimately, this casebook demands that students read carefully and at a detailed level, analyze critically, and apply the law from the perspective of the theories underlying the various doctrines. It provides an effective vehicle through which to teach legal analysis and to gently nudge students forward and deeper into the materials.
