Tort Law and Alternatives

Marc A. Franklin

This leading casebook covers all major aspects of tort law with expertly edited cases and original text. The principal focus of this book is the law of negligence, strict liability, and no-fault legislation as alternative approaches to compensating the victims of accidental harm and creating optimal incentives for safety. The chapter on intentional torts has been restructured to facilitate its use to start off the course for those instructors desiring to do so. The book also includes comprehensive chapters on products liability, damages and insurance, defamation, privacy, economic torts, and a revamped and updated chapter on alternatives to tort law, including the "tort reforms" of the past half century. Notes and questions following principal cases are designed to supplement students' knowledge about the subject matter of the case and related areas as well as to encourage them to think critically about judicial opinions and tort policy. This Eleventh Edition reflects evolving developments in recent case law and legislative activity, as well as materials and commentary ranging from the soon-to-be completed Third Restatement project on Intentional Torts to continuing tort issues arising from the Internet to important civil justice issues of the day.

Public Health Law, Ethics, and Policy

Richard J. Bonnie

This pioneering book offers the most comprehensive and teachable compilation of materials on public health law now available. The updated 2nd edition provides significant new materials on the unprecedented challenges for courts and government policymakers presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Its unique perspective highlights the evolving legal, political and social responses to the current infectious disease outbreak—in the context of earlier court cases and policies dating back to cholera in the 1900s through SARS and Ebola in this century.The 2nd edition also features the emergence of health equity as a key public health perspective, as increasingly detailed data document the differential impact of upstream social and environmental determinants on the health of the public and on the health of particular populations. Other updates focus on "system-approaches" to complex health problems, such as opioid misuse and obesity, that require data, engagement and coordination across numerous government entities.One of the challenges of teaching public health law is that it touches many other government sectors and bodies of law. This book solves that problem by organizing and integrating the material to address (1) cross-cutting themes in public health policy, such as government authority and justification to restrict individual liberties or use emergency powers and (2) the primary policy tools used by public health policymakers and practitioners, from behavioral interventions such as immunization and quarantine to environmental regulations. The book aims to explore topics from different points of view, weaving together public health sciences, ethics, law, and public policy.In perhaps their most exciting innovation, Bonnie, Bernheim and Matthews have constructed an intriguing and diverse menu of teachable units focused on specific policy problems or case studies in public health action. The book weaves together pertinent medical information and public health statistics, court decisions and other legal materials, and ethics commentaries. It uses both judicial opinions and concrete problems in public health policy and practice as the main vehicles for classroom discussion. Examples include leading a community response to COVID-19 that addresses health disparities, differential social and economic need, vaccine allocation and resistance; and preparing public health testimony for a state legislature on immunization requirements or exemptions. Other case studies include substandard housing as a determinant of health, and the upstream effects of climate change on the health of children. Students are also exposed to a variety of cross-cutting regulatory frameworks, including product safety, environmental protection, and data privacy.This book is richly interdisciplinary. Although designed for students of law, the book can easily be adapted to courses designed for students in public health, public policy and interprofessional settings examining the role of law and public policy in advancing population health and health equity.

Administrative Law

Andrew F. Popper

Administrative Law: A Contemporary Approach, 4th Edition is a comprehensive reorganization and updating of the 3rd edition, written just as administrative law was becoming the centerpiece in a national discourse on governance. From 2017 forward, nothing seemed settled. What are the metes and bounds of presidential power? Of congress? Of the courts? Judicial confirmation hearings made Chevron, separation of powers, and federalism everyday concerns, but somewhere, in the core of this challenge to governance, the fundamentals of the administrative law field proved up to the task.The 4th edition provides a current, comprehensive, and apolitical presentation of the substance and promise of administrative law. The book honors and retains the traditional materials while integrating 24 new principal cases and hundreds of references to lower court cases and executive actions.The casebook begins with the basics of administrative law and the arguments favoring and opposing regulation. The text then moves to the powers of the presidency and the Congress, and concise chapters exploring rulemaking, adjudication, and judicial review thereof. In this interactive casebook, students have access to 260 multiple choice questions and answers organized by chapter, "blue boxes" that highlight major points, and a new feature, "recent sightings," allowing students to see how and where cases decided decades ago are still of meaningful consequence.

Negotiation and Lawyers

Art Hinshaw

Negotiation and Lawyers takes the latest scholarly thinking in negotiation and applies it to the various tasks that negotiators do in a way that negotiation practitioners will appreciate. Written in 2020, the book is responsive to the increased role technology plays in the negotiation process due to the recent pandemic and provides important insights into the impact of racial inequity and implicit bias in negotiation.Negotiation and Lawyers presents the core concepts, skills, and strategies for lawyers to succeed in the art of negotiation. We believe that anyone can improve their negotiating skills by utilizing research and psychology to inform a more intentional and strategic approach, which is what this book does—tailors negotiation theory to negotiation practice. To do this, the authors move away from the prevailing method of teaching negotiation styles; they present negotiation as a process where two fundamental tasks are taking place: the creation and claiming of value. Negotiators tend to think one task is more important than the other, and this book supports both schools of thought. No matter where one stands on this issue, improving one's ability as a negotiator requires practice in skills such as listening, framing, and perspective-taking as well as understanding how to effectively prepare for negotiation in order to make more strategic, intentional, and ethical decisions. Furthermore, negotiators must acknowledge the impact of human factors in the process—emotions, cognitive biases, identity, perceptions, racial inequity, and implicit bias along with the non-human factors such as how to negotiate using various modes of technology.This book presents these topics in a succinct manner and is ideal for 2-3 credit courses or shorter, intensive programs including negotiation training programs. At just under 200 pages, readers can easily absorb the core concepts while also having plenty of opportunity for deeper exploration through unique call-out boxes interspersed throughout the text as well as the traditional reflection questions in most textbooks.
