It links legal ethics with materials drawn from other disciplines, especially sociology, economics, and psychology, to help students appreciate actual practice realities and the implications for daily experience. It includes some of the classic cases and materials on professional responsibility and also features up-to-date problems and materials on current issues. This is the only PR book on the market that provides sufficient explanation of basic legal concepts and the operation of the legal system to make it suitable for first-year students. It includes an extensive teachers' manual with sample syllabi, detailed advice about how to teach the materials, written instructions for role-play exercises, and sample exam questions.

This text, the only criminal law casebook authored by two progressive female law professors of color, provides the reader with both critical race and critical feminist theory perspectives on criminal law while following a traditional format. All of the usual subject areas are covered, but the book is unique in highlighting the cultural context of substantive criminal law. The book seamlessly integrates issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation so the teacher who wishes to address such issues does not have to assign supplemental reading assignments in order to do so. The book is also very student-friendly, providing a brief doctrinal overview of the subject matter at the beginning of each chapter. The book does away with the tradition of long lists of notes and questions following the cases, a trademark feature of many older casebooks, putting this material in the Teachers Manual for the teacher to use at his or her discretion. The forthcoming third edition is fresh and innovative, referencing several ripped from the headlines controversies, including the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman and Florida's stand your ground law, the arrest of African American Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. for disorderly conduct, the shooting of Larry King, a gender nonconforming teenager, by classmate Brandon McInerney and the gay panic defense, and the repeal of North Carolina's Racial Justice Act.

Remedies Ninth teaches students how to traverse the complex territory of choice and measurement of plaintiffs' remedies. Accessible and readable decisions build on upper-level students' first-year courses in contracts, torts, property, constitutional law, and civil procedure. Remedies Ninth is organized to teach students how to choose and measure damages, injunctions, and restitution. It emphasizes the lawyer's tactics in addition to the court's decisions. It examines law and economics in selecting between tort and contract remedies. Remedies Ninth teaches the substance and remedies of unjust enrichment law with provocative cases and discussion of the Restatement (Third) of Restitution and Unjust Enrichment (A.L.I. 2011). New decisions in Remedies Ninth examine medical and emotional distress damages, the American attorney-fee Rule and the private-attorney-general exception, state constitutional limits on damages caps, the continuing impact of eBay v. MercExchange on injunctions, unconscionability in a contract to arbitrate, contractual limitations on recovery of damages, restitutionary disgorgement remedies for opportunistic breach of contract, and remedies for harm to pets.

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

The casebook covers all of the major topics that a professor might wish to teach in a first-year course, and can easily be adapted for courses of one- or two-semesters, of different credit hours, and with varied practical or theoretical emphases. A supplement includes all updated Federal Rules, the pleadings in Twombly and Iqbal, a model case file, state materials, and other important teaching tools.
