The fundamental rules, court cases, concepts and trends of each key subject in American law are presented in a narrative tailored to the reader without an American legal background. Each chapter covers a major area of law, summarizes the leading doctrines, analyzes recurring, current and developing trends, highlights areas of contemporary debate, offers streamlined versions of precedent-setting cases, raises questions for further discussion, and lists important vocabulary words.This book is ideal for readers who want to understand the contemporary American legal system at a more than superficial level, but who are not currently studying to become American lawyers. The style, organization and content make the book attractive for such readers as those planning on entering law school; paralegal assistants; students of American law outside of the United States; American undergraduates taking a course in American law and/or in a pre-law program; and graduate level students in subjects other than American law. The size, weight and price of the book are tailored to make the book attractive to students.
Art Law & Transactions presents art law along a transactional timeline of acquisition, ownership, and disposition. Issues are framed within an art market orientation to immediately challenge students to think like lawyers. The transactional focus reveals the uneven development of art law as works of art alternate between ordinary commercial status and exceptional status. The chapters on Acquisition explore the three major acquisition venues (from an artist, a dealer, or at auction) and the core legal issues of authenticity and title. The chapters on Ownership begin with crossing borders, followed by moral rights, and art loans. Disposition concludes the transactional timeline with sales and exchanges (echoing acquisition), gratuitous dispositions (to family, friends, and charities), and valuation. Historic and contemporary vignettes from the domestic and international art world are sprinkled throughout the book to engage the reader and to underscore art law s roots and global impact. In addition to traditional and current art law cases, the transactional format uniquely incorporates student drafting exercises. For example, the first Chapter, "Acquisition from an Artist," includes two commission agreements one by an artist, the other by a lawyer. Students can readily see what each party values and use that to fashion an agreement for Mr. Smith, the hypothetical client. Mr. Smith appears regularly throughout the book: buying through a dealer, importing from abroad, lending to a museum, acting as an estate fiduciary, and bequeathing art in his will. The exercises are optional and could be used as team projects or negotiation exercises. Statutory materials, international treaties, and conventions are provided on a CD.
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.
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.
