The problem approach featured in Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions thoroughly engages students with imaginative scenarios, presenting the material as easily accessible and as manageable as possible without avoiding the intricacies of secured transactions. Students come to appreciate that the principal resource for the course is UCC Article 9 itself. While the casebook is an essential tool for study, the law is found in the Code. Problems and Cases on Secured Transactions is carefully designed for an introductory mainstream course, not for an advanced course or seminar. The material is presented as completely comprehensible, even enjoyable rather than an arcane science than only an insider can understand. Cases are heavily edited, and liberal editorial note help express the vibrancy of true-life situations. A good mix of short and long problems gives each lesson a comprehensive linear flow while keeping students focused. A progressive mix of problems helps students see the common elements, as rules and principals learned in a simpler setting can readily be applied to more complex transactions. Earlier problems lean more heavily, though not exclusively, on the individual and consumer-borrower situations. As the lessons advance, the mix of materials progressively includes more small-business and large-business transactions.

Written by leading Conflicts scholars, this casebook presents a balanced study of Conflict of Laws. The books starts with a discussion of traditional approaches to choice-of-law problems, followed by an examination how modern courts and commentators have struggled to formulate more responsive approaches. The remaining broad topics--constitutional limitations on choice of law, the Erie doctrine, personal jurisdiction, conflicts in the federal system, recognition of judgments, conflicts in the international context, choosing legal regimes and choice of law in complex litigation--are considered in light of the wisdom derived from consideration of the basic choice-of-law problems. Key New Features: Chapter on Conflict of Laws in the Federal System, which was deleted in the 6th edition, is added back at the request of adopters; the chapter does not attempt a comprehensive coverage of issues that are typically addressed in a civil procedure or federal jurisdiction course but instead focuses on the federalism questions that are relevant to conflict of laws. Addition of Goodyear v. Brown and Daimler v. Bauman to the chapter on personal jurisdiction, two Supreme Court cases that greatly modernize the subject New discussion of the impact of law and economics on choice of law theory Discussion of new cases on post-9/11 scope of constitutional limits New examples pertaining to recognition of judgments in domestic relations cases, e.g., child kidnapping Continued coverage of the First Restatement rules that continue to be important, with less emphasis on First Restatement rules of less relevance today. Re-introduction of discussion of New York cases addressing choice of law theory, with focus on important new cases

An Anatomy of Louisiana Evidence Law is the first of its kind in Louisiana, representing a new trend in law school casebooks across the country. Much more than just a compilation of cases and notes, this book is a complete coursebook. It presents a detailed, thorough, and comprehensive examination of the law of evidence through the use of concise commentary and a number of pedagogical elements designed to both reinforce legal principles and to help bridge the ever-widening gap between law school theory and practice. This exceptionally organized casebook covers the entire Louisiana Code of Evidence with a treatise-like explanation of the legal principles, written in a reader friendly style. The casebook includes both Louisiana cases and select U.S. Supreme Court cases directly affecting Louisiana law with discussion questions to assist students in understanding the cases and concepts in each section. Reinforced by a summary of key points, students are presented with a straightforward presentation of the law, designed to better equip them to more fully engage in classroom lectures and discussion. This style of presentation of the law is coupled with numerous opportunities for application with over 400 original problems and practical application exercises. Throughout the book are comparisons of major distinctions between the Louisiana Code of Evidence and the Federal Rules of Evidence and a discussion of public policy concerns underlying the evidentiary principles to serve as a guide to understanding how the law should be applied and to better understand many of the distinctions in the state and federal laws.
