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.

Professors Sophie Sparrow, Gerry Hess, and Michael Hunter Schwartz, three leaders in the teaching and learning movement in legal education, have collaborated to offer a new book designed to synthesize the latest research on teaching and learning for adjunct law professors. The book begins with basic principles of teaching and learning theory, provides insights into how law students experience traditional law teaching, and then guides law teachers through the entire process of teaching a course. The topics addressed include: how to plan a course; how to design a syllabus and select a text; how to plan individual class sessions; how to engage and motivate students, even those tough-to-crack second- and third-year students; how to use a wide variety of teaching techniques; how to evaluate student learning, both for the purposes of assigning grades and of improving student learning; and how to be a lifelong learner as a teacher.
