The fourth edition of Refugee Law and Policy, which includes all legal developments through mid-2010, provides a thoughtful scholarly analysis of refugee law, and related protections such as those available under the Convention against Torture. The book is rooted in an international law perspective, enhanced by a comparative approach. Starting with ancient precursors to asylum, the casebook portrays refugee law as dynamic across time and cultural contexts. This edition of the casebook has incorporated substantial new materials on the cutting edge area of social group claims, and their relevance to claims for protection based on gender-persecution and LGBT status. It includes an extensive discussion of the concept of “social visibility” which has become one of the most controversial interpretive issues in U.S. refugee law. Although Refugee Law and Policy is directed to students of U.S. law, it draws on the legislation, jurisprudence and guidelines of other Refugee Convention and Protocol signatories, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The casebook is up to date on developments to harmonize refugee policy within the European Union, and includes discussion of relevant E.U. directives. In its treatment of both U.S. and global trends, Refugee Law and Policy examines and contrasts some of the most controversial contemporary issues in refugee law, such as the denial of access to the territory of the country of asylum, through use of expedited removal and similar “accelerated” procedures, the increased use of detention, and the ongoing debate over gender-based claims for protection. Refugee Law and Policy also compares current trends in refugee law to parallel trends in human rights and humanitarian and international criminal law, with special reference to the work of the International Criminal Tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and the International Criminal Court. The materials Musalo, Moore and Boswell present in the book are more fully examined through the extensive use of notes and comments, which also serve to highlight essential themes and concepts of the text and to make them more accessible to the reader. Since the casebook addresses both substance and procedure, with a focus on practice as well as theory, it is an excellent text not only for students, but for practitioners and those in government agencies as well.

The eighth edition of this pioneering casebook continues its tradition of comprehensive coverage, with problems and exercises that allow students to hone skills as counselors, as litigators, and as policy advisors. At the same time, the casebook helps students understand how immigration and citizenship law illuminates essential aspects of constitutional and administrative law and plays a key role in current political debates. This new edition is leaner, with significant reworking, thinning, and updating of core chapters on admissions categories, admission procedures, and removability. It also reflects the latest developments in federal enforcement, as well as state and local measures for both immigration enforcement and the integration of unauthorized migrants. The casebook incorporates important recent doctrinal changes, while trimming overall length.

Public Welfare Law provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of public benefit law. Its heaviest emphasis is on AFDC/TANF, food stamps/SNAP, Medicaid, Social Security/SSI, and unemployment compensation. It also includes both main cases and extensive note materials on a wide range of other programs, including public housing, Section 8, the Low-Income Housing Credit, LIHEAP, school meals, WIC, disaster assistance, trade adjustment assistance, foster care, veterans' pensions, Black Lung disability, survivors' insurance, general assistance, and lifeline communications, among others. To help students develop transferable analytic skills, it is organized by concept rather than by program, with each conceptual chapter drawing illustrations from multiple programs. Thus, for example, chapters cover means testing, program administration, federalism, the differences between capped and open-ended programs, the amount of benefits and the form in which they are provided, work, other behavioral rules, interactions with immigration law, and challenges facing people with disabilities. Each chapter then draws on examples from multiple programs, allowing students to see both commonalities and critical differences. Copious notes, discussion questions, and problems in each section facilitate moving class discussion in many different directions. The book can support a substantive course or seminar in public benefits law or the classroom component of a clinic or practicum. It includes both practical materials (e.g., a step-by-step guide to calculating SNAP and EITC eligibility and benefits, cases on each of the five steps of the SSDI/SSI disability determination process) and theoretical and policy insights from across the political spectrum. Although its emphasis is on law, it also acquaints students with important social scientists such as William Julius Wilson, Kathryn Edin, Frances Fox Piven, and Richard Cloward and with research organizations such as the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. It also includes the voices of recipients of public benefits. The book is also designed to support a course in legislation and regulation. To this end, cases and materials were selected to present crucial aspects of administrative law (e.g., rule-making, FOIA, FACA, Chevron deference, arbitrary and capricious review, and procedural due process), major approaches to statutory interpretation, economic analysis of agency behavior and regulatory choices, public choice, privatization, and institutional reform litigation. A complete teacher's manual will provide suggestions on helping students through the more technical aspects of the materials, what to expect from discussion of the various questions and problems, and the author's insights from having taught these materials at six law schools as well as to policy and social work students.
