Every chapter in this innovative casebook places students in roles as practitioners handling simulated law practice problems; provides context in the form of an overview of the law, similar to that which an attorney would read before reading cases in a new subject area; includes questions designed to encourage students to find the applicable statutes and cases on point in the state where the student is planning to practice law; includes exercises, visual aids, and case reading scaffolds, designed to engage students with a wide range of learning styles; and ends with professionalism questions addressing ethical and professional identity questions suggested by the materials in the chapter. The second edition retains the style, format, and teaching and learning goals of the first edition, but some cases have been replaced or re-edited, and many of the textual materials, problems, exercises, and case questions have been revised, supplemented, or updated. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

This book uses samples of sales contracts and problems drawn from actual case files to engage students in the role of a lawyer involved in a sales transaction. With the exception of the introductory and conclusion chapters, each chapter starts with a problem to analyze and resolve during study of that chapter. This book is unique due to its emphasis on deconstructing statutes and using a variety of visual aids to help students become experts in the application of the law to facts to solve a problem. The second edition retains the style, format, and teaching and learning goals of the first edition, but some cases have been added, and some textual materials, problems and exercises have been revised, supplemented, or updated. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

International Business Transactions provides a basic introduction to international economic relations as well as to cross-border transactions in goods and services. The book covers both international trade and international business transactions materials and can be used for a course covering either or both topics. The book includes numerous individual and collaborative exercises so that students can ''learn by doing'' with respect to everything from trade negotiations to contract drafting. International Business Transactions is divided into four parts. The first three parts (Chapters 1-12) take students from the big picture concepts of international trade and monetary relations, through institutional arrangements such as the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement, and then on to trade practice including import and export regulations and trade remedies such as antidumping and countervailing duties. The fourth part of the book (Chapters 13-16) focuses on transactional practice, including international sale of goods transactions, letters of credit, and a number of other arrangements such as distributorships and franchises that are commonly used in international business. International Business Transactions provides students with an opportunity to debate the merits of globalization, classify a good under the Harmonized Tariff System, and draft a clause to ensure that a foreign agent complies with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, all in the same class. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

A client comes to a lawyer with a difficult legal problem, involving a complex set of facts. The lawyer then researches the legal issues, finding a cluster of cases and statutes - almost all from the jurisdiction in which the problem arises. In order to advise the client (and, if necessary, to litigate the case), the lawyer must analyze, distinguish, reconcile, and interrelate the authorities in the cluster, seeing them as a group indicating the direction of that state's law, as well as seeing them separately. Cases and Problems in Criminal Law contains the caselaw that law students have to know and helps professors to recreate that experience so their students can learn how to handle it. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

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.
