Criminal Pretrial Advocacy serves as a resource for educators, students, and beginning trial attorneys by focusing on what criminal lawyers primarily do-prepare cases and settle them. In order to assist preparation, the text emphasizes strategy and ethics. For educators, this text would be ideal for pretrial advocacy courses. For students, it can serve as an introduction and careful description of the process of trial preparation and settlement. Unlike casebooks, this text offers a clear and practical description of the logistics of trial preparation and tips for case settlement. For practitioners, it provides a foundation, or a basic guide, for introducing new attorneys to the pre-trial procedures they might otherwise be unfamiliar with. By reading and studying Criminal Pretrial Advocacy, advocates will be better prepared for trial and in a better position to prevail. Throughout, we relate the foundations of criminal pretrial advocacy; we discuss filing charges, developing a persuasive case theory, and bail review strategies. You will learn how successful attorneys interview their clients and witnesses. We explain proper discovery procedure and draw on our courtroom experience to identify the methods needed to effectively litigate preliminary and grand jury hearings. A significant portion of the text is devoted to the mechanics of preparing and presenting motions. Criminal Pretrial Advocacy will also provide strategies for arriving at successful case settlements. When you are finished, you will possess the tools to prepare confidently and successfully for criminal trials. Criminal Pretrial Advocacy will be most effective when used in conjunction with our mock trial companion book, Criminal Mock Trials. The companion book presents a comprehensive set of interesting case files with a variety of pretrial and trial issues for students to explore. Together the companion book and this text present a series of criminal practice cases, hypothetical cases, checklists, and notes on ethical considerations. Both texts present stimulating pretrial advocacy and ethical issues to facilitate provocative discourse. Because an advocate's success in criminal law stems from the meticulous planning that takes place during the pretrial stages, attorneys must prepare thoroughly. Criminal Pretrial Advocacy and Criminal Mock Trials will provide you with the tools needed to achieve this goal.

With the prior edition of this concise, up-to-date casebook having been adopted at over 100 law schools, the eighth edition preserves the authors' tradition of providing a comprehensive overview of agency, partnership, and corporation law. It also continues to emphasize six basic editorial principles: Be lean but not mean, cases edited ruthlessly to produce a readable and concise result. Facts matter, so they are included in all their potential ambiguity. Bring a planner's perspective to the table through extensive use of transactionally-oriented problems. It's a casebook not a treatise. No long, stultifying textual passages. Provide the cases and let the individual teacher use them as he or she sees fit. Try to find cases that are fun to teach. Great facts or a clever analysis are always given first priority in case selection. Provide a teachers' manual that goes into great depth, with analysis of every case and, whenever applicable, offering the disparate views of each author. An exhaustive teachers' manual extensively discusses every case and provides answers to every question in the text. One feature that many adopters find especially helpful is that all three editors give their own approach to the cases, showing the different ways in which the same case can be taught. Annually updated PowerPoint slides cover almost all sections of the book and feature an extensive use of data, graphics, and photos.

Antitrust Law and Intellectual Property Rights

Cases and Materials

Author: Christopher R. Leslie

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

ISBN: 0195337190

Category: Law

Page: 681

View: 1988


In Antitrust Law and Intellectual Property Rights: Cases and Materials, Christopher R. Leslie describes how patents, copyrights, and trademarks confer exclusionary rights on their owners, and how firms sometimes exercise this exclusionary power in ways that exceed the legitimate bounds of their intellectual property rights. Leslie explains that while substantive intellectual property law defines the scope of the exclusionary rights, antitrust law often provides the most important consequences when owners of intellectual property misuse their rights in a way that harms consumers or illegitimately excludes competitors. Antitrust law defines the limits of what intellectual property owners can do with their IP rights. In this book, Leslie explores what conduct firms can and cannot engage in while acquiring and exploiting their intellectual property rights, and surveys those aspects of antitrust law that are necessary for both antitrust practitioners and intellectual property attorneys to understand. This book is ideal for an advanced antitrust course in a JD program. In addition to building on basic antitrust concepts, it fills in a gap that is often missing in basic antitrust courses yet critical for an intellectual property lawyer: the intersection of intellectual property and antitrust law. The relationship between intellectual property and antitrust is particularly valuable as an increasing number of law schools offer specializations and LLMs in intellectual property. This book also provides meaningful material for both undergraduate and graduate business schools programs because it explains how antitrust law limits the marshalling of intellectual property rights.

The Future of the Internet--And How to Stop It

Author: Jonathan Zittrain

Publisher: Yale University Press

ISBN: 9780300145342

Category: Law

Page: 352

View: 1561


This extraordinary book explains the engine that has catapulted the Internet from backwater to ubiquity—and reveals that it is sputtering precisely because of its runaway success. With the unwitting help of its users, the generative Internet is on a path to a lockdown, ending its cycle of innovation—and facilitating unsettling new kinds of control. IPods, iPhones, Xboxes, and TiVos represent the first wave of Internet-centered products that can't be easily modified by anyone except their vendors or selected partners. These “tethered appliances” have already been used in remarkable but little-known ways: car GPS systems have been reconfigured at the demand of law enforcement to eavesdrop on the occupants at all times, and digital video recorders have been ordered to self-destruct thanks to a lawsuit against the manufacturer thousands of miles away. New Web 2.0 platforms like Google mash-ups and Facebook are rightly touted—but their applications can be similarly monitored and eliminated from a central source. As tethered appliances and applications eclipse the PC, the very nature of the Internet—its “generativity,” or innovative character—is at risk. The Internet's current trajectory is one of lost opportunity. Its salvation, Zittrain argues, lies in the hands of its millions of users. Drawing on generative technologies like Wikipedia that have so far survived their own successes, this book shows how to develop new technologies and social structures that allow users to work creatively and collaboratively, participate in solutions, and become true “netizens.”

This text provides a reader-friendly, accessible overview of unincorporated business associations. While emphasizing the doctrinal issues taught in today's unincorporated business associations classes, it places significant emphasis on economic analysis of the major issues in that course. The second edition has been comprehensively updated. It includes extensive new treatment of the now final Restatement (Third) of Agency and amendments to the various uniform acts governing unincorporated business associations. The coverage has been expanded to include additional topics, especially in the chapter on limited liability companies, so as to reflect their continually growing popularity as a choice of form for small businesses. Among these new topics are single member LLCs, shelf LLCs, conversion to an LLC from other forms of business organizations, promoters' duties, non-profit and low profit LLCs, and freedom of contract in LLC law.
