The Fifth Edition of this pioneering casebook includes the usual rich mix of materials and is adaptable to a survey course, a policy-oriented seminar, or a more specialized J.D. or LL.M tax class. Every major topic is accompanied by a skillfully developed set of problems and includes lively notes, questions, and bibliographic references. Highlights of the Fifth Edition include: Coverage of all important developments since the last edition, including new state legislation and case law on nonprofit formation, governance, and donor standing; IRS scrutiny of colleges and universities, nonprofit executive compensation, and commercial activities; final tax regulations on the public charity support tests and supporting organizations; proposed regulations on the exemption requirements for hospitals and program-related investments; and recent antitrust litigation and other lawsuits challenging the NCAA's regulation of college athletes. Reorganized and updated coverage of the limitations on lobbying and political campaign activities of § 501(c)(3) charities; the use and abuse of noncharitable exempt organizations for political activities; and the implications of the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision on the nonprofit sector. Expanded discussion of the emerging forms of hybrid entities used for social enterprises that combine a public benefit mission with the pursuit of profit. A new and more contemporary introductory problem on the choices facing the founders of a nonprofit organization and revised problems on the state law duties of loyalty and care and the federal tax exemption standards for hospitals. A survey of proposed tax reform legislation affecting exempt organizations and the charitable deduction. Pruning of dated materials, minutia, and more tightly-edited cases, notes, and problems.

This text is the seventh edition of an authoritative work that has defined and shaped the legal analysis of scientific evidence for four decades. A single source and definitive reference for law students, scholars, practicing attorneys, and judges, it covers the critical topics in the law and the scientific disciplines most frequently encountered in the courtroom.

It covers the legal principles relevant to demonstrative exhibits used by expert witnesses in connection with scientific evidence. Drawing upon extensive case references and current research articles, the book includes such topics and disciplines as fingerprint evidence, firearm and toolmark evidence, forensic document examination, fire scene and explosives investigation, trace evidence, vehicle investigations, digital forensics, forensic anthropology, forensic odontology, forensic pathology, forensic toxicology, forensic biology and DNA analysis, controlled substances analysis, and forensic psychiatry and psychology.

The 12th edition of this popular casebook includes key U.S. Supreme Court opinions, updated information on scientific evidence, new questions and hypotheticals, and common courtroom objections. Specifically, the new edition adds two important new Supreme Court cases on the right to confrontation and incorporates the restyled Federal Rules of Evidence. It introduces a revised organization of the materials on hearsay, to reflect better recent developments on the confrontation right. The chapter on the best evidence rule has been extensively updated. Numerous changes have been made to bring other chapters to date. Older materials that have a tired feel have been dropped, but teaching favorites that have stood the test of time have been retained. Oversized cases have been edited to reduce length. The authors have continued the practice of choosing cases and other materials on the basis of teachability, and they have added new cases that promise to be fun to teach. An updated version of the much-admired Teacher's Manual will also be available.

The Sixth Edition of this highly-regarded casebook continues its innovative emphasis on the connection between the law of trusts and estates and the changing American family. The Sixth Edition incorporates the most recent uniform acts from the Uniform Law Commission and the Third Restatements of the American Law Institute, and discusses the very latest "hot" topics, including trust protectors, directed trusts, trust decanting, family offices, and donor standing to enforce charitable trusts. The Sixth Edition also incorporates new important cases, such as the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Hillman v. Maretta (2013). The authors of this book have long been at the forefront of law reform in trusts and estates, and this tradition continues under the authorship of Thomas Gallanis, who is the executive director of the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts. He was also an associate reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts and has been the reporter of two uniform acts, most recently the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act (completed 2013). The Sixth Edition emphasizes problems and questions to facilitate classroom discussion and analysis. Among many other things, the book teaches doctrine and policy, planning and drafting, case analysis and statutory interpretation. The detailed teacher's manual includes extensive syllabi and notes for classroom teaching.
