The Impeachments of Donald Trump

Victoria F. Nourse

The Impeachments of Donald Trump: An Introduction to Constitutional Interpretation presents an accessible introduction to one of the nation's most searing constitutional confrontations between the President and Congress. The purpose of the book is two-fold: First, it provides a curated record of a constitutional moment of extraordinary importance in the history of modern democracy. As such, it can be used by any instructor wishing to add interest to constitutional law courses in or outside law schools, whether in departments of history, political science, or legal studies. Second, precisely because this event is important in understanding modern democracy, the book is pitched at a wider audience than standard legal texts, and can be used to teach the very basics of legal argument—how lawyers reason about the constitution—to undergraduates as well as first-year law students. Teaching constitutional reasoning can pose great difficulties when students are given ancient 18th-century materials with no apparent relevance to pressing issues in modern memory. Throughout the book, students are asked to consider the basic form of arguments in constitutional law: text, history, past precedent, future precedent, and democratic ethos. This book contributes to the growing literature addressing democratic constitutionalism—constitutional reasoning outside the courts. More importantly, it provides a lively—and exciting—context in which to teach legal reasoning for introductory courses on the Constitution.

A Short & Happy Guide to Bankruptcy

Bruce A. Markell

Bankruptcy is a complicated subject that covers a lot of ground. Bankruptcy lawyers can be found on Main Street and Wall Street. This efficient and effective guide to Bankruptcy will help you see the big picture. The authors focus on explaining the key concepts or building blocks that apply in any type of bankruptcy case, and then help you see those concepts in action in cases under the different chapters of the Bankruptcy Code, in proceedings ranging from individual consumer debtors in Chapter 7 or 13 to Fortune 500 Corporations in Chapter 11. To make the learning process more bearable, the authors have also infused the book with humor. Each of the authors is a nationally-renowned law teacher who has practiced and taught Bankruptcy for many years. One of them is even a former bankruptcy judge. Based on that experience, in this book they have set forth understandable techniques for mastering the law governing bankruptcy law, procedure, and real-world practice (in an exceedingly attractive manner).

Administrative Law Theory and Fundamentals

Ilan Wurman

Administrative Law Theory and Fundamentals: An Integrated Approach takes a formalist approach to administrative law while defending more of the administrative state than other formalist accounts. It proposes a theory of administrative power that better explains constitutional text and structure, as well as historical and modern practice. It argues that there are "exclusive" powers that only Congress, the President, and the courts can respectively exercise, but also "nonexclusive" powers that can be exercised by more than one branch. This theory of "nonexclusive powers" allows students and scholars of administrative law to make more sense of—or better critiques of—administrative concepts such as delegation, quasi-powers, judicial deference, agency adjudications, the chameleon-like quality of government power, and of the separation of powers more broadly.The casebook also innovates by more extensively discussing (and including in appendices) the 1852 steamboat legislation and the 1887 Interstate Commerce Act; deploying lessons of statutory interpretation as they arise in specific cases; interspersing online assessment questions for each chapter; and by including dedicated "debating" sections that excerpt from the secondary literature on the theory, values, and policy merits of contested doctrines such as deference, unitary executive power, the due process revolution, and universal injunctions. Finally, the book makes numerous organizational improvements, including by placing due process materials after Article III materials and restructuring materials on reviewability.

Constitutional Law

Jonathan D. Varat

This Concise Edition of the casebook is a compact, easy-to-wield book that focuses on the text of Supreme Court opinions and other primary documents. It is considerably shorter than previous Concise Editions because the authors have omitted First Amendment topics on the grounds that teachers and students of those ever-expanding materials (most often taught in separate courses) would be better served by the more comprehensive coverage in the unabridged edition. Like the unabridged edition, however, it continues to provide as much of the raw decisional, statutory and historical note material as is practical to allow teachers the latitude to structure courses in their own ways and to encourage students to formulate their own generalizations directly from the materials. It concentrates on the role of the federal judiciary, separation of powers, federalism, and the Reconstruction Amendments, including all aspects of due process, equal protection, and congressional powers to enforce them.

Constitutional Law

Gregory E. Maggs

This edition of the casebook is designed specifically for use by undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in Constitutional Law but who are not law students. The casebook differs from many other textbooks aimed at this audience because it enables students to read the Supreme Court's decisions rather than just reading about them. To make this possible, the casebook defines legal terms, explains court procedures, and provides other background information that would be unfamiliar to non-law students. In writing the book, the authors have strived to make constitutional law easily teachable and readily accessible. They have selected the cases very carefully and provided extensive excerpts of the opinions so that students get a good sense of the Court's reasoning. Text boxes call the students' attention to important aspects of each opinion, and the book is filled with introductions, points for discussion, hypotheticals, and executive summaries. The authors present a diversity of views on every subject, and, reflecting some of their own disagreements, the authors have written point-counterpoint discussions on many disputed questions.
