The 1805 New York foxhunting case Pierson v. Post has long been used in American property law classrooms to introduce law students to the concept of first possession by asking how one establishes possession of a wild animal. In this book, Professor Angela Fernandez retells the history of the famous fox case, from its origins as a squabble between two wealthy young men on the South Fork of Long Island through its appeal to the New York Supreme Court and entry into legal treatises, law school casebooks, and law journal articles, where it still occupies a central place. Professor Fernandez argues that the dissent is best understood as an example of legal solemn foolery. Yet it has been treated by legal professionals, the lawyers of its day, and subsequent legal academics in such a serious way, demonstrating how the solemn and the silly can occupy two sides of the same coin in American legal history.

Principles of Patent Law provides comprehensive coverage of the policies, laws, rules, and practices of the U.S. patent system in a format accessible to students, lawyers, government officials, and business people. The Sixth Edition builds on the strengths of prior editions in providing an indispensable combination of the law and economic theory of patents with extensive and diverse legal analyses and practitioner insights. It also continues to offer unique perspectives from the theory and practice of those who use and study property rights more generally and the history of the patent system more specifically. The Sixth Edition has been updated to cover the extensive developments in the law since the Fifth Edition, including the America Invents Act. This new edition also includes materials that contrast the common, utility patent, with other patent-like regimes including plant patents and design patents. A wealth of supplementary materials are provided in the accompanying website, including full versions of background documents such as patent files, unedited versions of important cases, extra reading, and special materials designed to help students during their studies as well as while seeking a job.

The new edition of this popular family law casebook captures the rapid changes to the American family and the corresponding evolution of doctrine. The book emphasizes that contemporary families take a variety of forms, including marital and nonmarital relationships, and that constitutional considerations play an increasingly important role in family law. The new edition preserves and updates the approach of the earlier editions by presenting core family law doctrine while also exploring emerging policy debates, discussing the importance of collaborating with professionals from other disciplines, and exploring the myriad issues central to family law practice. New cases have been introduced where needed, and the notes following each lead case and article have been thoroughly updated. Contemporary Family Law includes several important chapters that do not appear in most other family law casebooks. For example, the authors devote separate chapters to lawyering, private ordering, and alternative dispute resolution. And, in contrast to the usual approach, the book treats property distribution and alimony in separate chapters to emphasize each topic's distinctive theoretical and practical aspects. Moreover, because child custody arrangements lead to some of the most acrimonious family disputes, this casebook devotes two chapters to custody: the first treats the initial custody decision, and the second explores continuing litigation concerning visitation, custody, and key childrearing decisions after the initial disposition, including disputes involving third parties such as cohabitants and grandparents. Both custody chapters include disputes involving non-marital children. The book emphasizes legal practice issues by placing the lawyering chapter at the beginning of the book, by addressing jurisdictional issues in one integrated chapter and by providing problems for discussion throughout the book that enable students to apply doctrine in real-life settings that lawyers face. New and expanded material in the third edition includes: updated coverage of same-sex marriage and relationships; a new section on the Hague Convention; extensive coverage of debt and the 2005 Bankruptcy Act, reflecting the current economic climate; detailed discussion of new reproductive technologies; and major revisions to the chapters on professional ethics and child support (including recent data on the central role of child support in low-income families). Finally, the comprehensive 700-page teachers manual presents explanations and pedagogical strategies that will help new adopters design a rich course that meets their students' needs and aspirations. Moreover, for professors who have already used the book, the manual provides support on how to integrate new material into their existing lectures. The co-authors will share their powerpoint slides with professors who adopt the book.
