The text, problems and cases address issues of concern not only to litigators but also to transactional lawyers who structure transactions to allocate duties and risks in order to avoid litigation. The materials provide explanations for students unfamiliar with either international sales transactions or domestic sales law. Teachers using the book themselves need not be specialists. The authors have maintained most of the Problem exercises from the first edition, but have added the leading cases of the past decade to enrich the fabric of the current law. The Teacher's Manual suggests ways the materials may be taught and supplemented.

A new edition of a book on sales and leases of goods by two of the country's leading experts in commercial law. The book uses a problem-based approach to help students master the applicable legal rules, understand how the law applies to both simple and complex commercial transactions, and learn how to use the law in planning transactions and drafting agreements. The book consists primarily of text and carefully sequenced problems. Many of the problems ask students to apply the law to a set of facts. Others do the reverse, asking students to identify a set of facts to which a specific rule applies. The remainder prompt students to think about the policies underlying the law or how the law affects commercial behavior or do a bit of contract drafting. An extensive teacher's manual, available in both print and electronic format, contains suggestions on teaching methodology and a detailed analysis of all problems. PowerPoint slides custom designed for almost every problem are available to teachers on the web site for the book.. For more information and additional teaching materials, visit the companion site.

Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts

The Fifth Edition of Cases and Materials on the Law of Torts continues the tradition of using, as much as possible, minimally edited cases so that the book can serve as a vehicle for teaching first-year students the essential techniques of case analysis and legal method. The entire book has been modified to accommodate the many developments in the law of torts since the Fourth Edition was published in 2004. For example, the basic chapters on negligence and causation recognize and discuss the now finally adopted Restatement (Third) of Torts: Liability for Physical & Emotional Harm and the recent case law expanding liability for loss of a chance. The duty section has also undergone a major overhaul to reflect the conceptual framework by which courts think about duty and to elucidate the pervasive role of foreseeability in courts' duty decisions. The Materials on Product's Liability capture the many recent developments in that area; and the materials on dignitary harms reflect the increasing interaction between tort law and constitutional law as well as the expanding potential reach of international human rights conventions. Finally the Fifth Edition retains its comprehensive coverage of the entire field of torts so as to give instructors, all of whom are having to accommodate a curriculum that has cut back on the number of credit hours assigned to torts, the widest possible choice of subjects on which they may wish to concentrate in the limited time they have available.

"This book explores the interface between law and popular culture, two subjects of enormous current importance and influence. Exploring how they affect each other, each chapter discusses a legally themed film or television show, such as Philadelphia or Dead Man Walking, and treats it as both a cultural and a legal text, illustrating how popular culture both constructs our perceptions of law, and changes the way that players in the legal system behave. Written without theoretical jargon, Law and Popular Culture: A Course Book is intended for use in undergraduate or graduate courses and can be taught by anyone who enjoys pop culture and is interested in law."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The fourth edition continues the goal of earlier editions: providing the most current and comprehensive treatment of the modern law of sales and leases in national and international transactions. The new edition includes important new cases to elaborate the continuing development of critical provisions of that law, and to elucidate new case law trends. The official withdrawal of proposed amendments to UCC Articles 2 and 2A provided room for these important cases without a significant increase in the size of the volume. While continuing to emphasize any significant differences between Articles 2 and 2A, the new edition eliminates separate coverage of Article 2A where its provisions replicate Article 2. At the same time, the important distinction between true leases and secured transactions disguised as leases not only continues but is emphasized in new case and text material. Among other current developments, the fourth edition recognizes the Supreme Court's important elaboration of the Federal Arbitration Act and its effect on the holdings and rationales of state courts in adjudicating claims of unconscionable arbitration agreements. The unique CISG coverage of prior editions has been updated, along with the text material throughout the volume, to provide the most current dimensions of sales law.
