It is designed to give you the basis for an enjoyable, comprehensive learning experience for your students, providing you with the sort of piquing materials that should prompt interested and insightful classroom discussion.

This mixed presentation of traditional doctrines and debates about current legal issues allows your students to hone their analytical skills, as they learn to construct the arguments of today's prosecutors and defense counsel in criminal procedure litigation.As with other books in the Interactive Casebook series, an accompanying electronic version allows students immediate access to the full text of cited cases, statutes, articles, and other materials in the Westlaw database.This book includes chapters 3, and 9-23 of the main volume.

Labor Law

Robert A. Gorman

The Seventeenth Edition makes a number of significant changes to its predecessor, reflecting the evolution of the law relating to employers, employees, and unions in a dynamic economy and polarized political environment. This edition includes new decisions of the National Labor Relations Board appointed by President Trump, which has departed in many, significant ways from the approach of the Board under the Obama Administration. The Trump Board's starkly different outlook on the role of labor law in the contemporary workplace is reflected in its overturning or reversing precedents on many key issues, such as protections for employee electronic communications, accountability for employers in "fissured" enterprises, and treatment of various other employer restrictions on collective employee activity. The book also contains judicial decisions addressing these developments, evincing the growing conflicts over the role of labor unions in society.This edition supplies a comprehensive revision in light of major legal shifts occurring from 2016 through 2020, notablyNewly revised NLRB representation election rulesSuperShuttle and more, addressing the distinction between employees and independent contractorsThe Boeing Company, adopting a new and markedly different framework for analyzing whether facial neutral workplace rules interfere with Section 7 rights, including rules addressing matters such as employee use of cameras in the workplace and workplace civility standardsCaesars Entertainment, reverting to the Board's prior approach (under The Register Guard) to rules on employee use of employer email for concerted activityThe NLRB General Counsel's advocacy of stricter limitations on neutrality agreementsNewly enacted rules overturning Browning-Ferris and narrowing the scope of joint employer statusAlstate Maintenance, seemingly narrowing the scope of concerted activity for mutual aid or protectionEpic Systems, in which the Supreme Court rejected the Board's decision in Murphy Oil, thereby unwinding protection against contractual waivers of the capacity to participate in group arbitration or adjudication of employment-related claimsGeneral Motors, adopting a new approach to determining when allegedly abusive conduct loses protection under Section 7.MV Transportation, abandoning the "clear and unmistakable" standard for determining whether a CBA waives the duty to bargain and replacing it with a "contract coverage" standard.New discussion problems and exercises throughout the text offer students the opportunity to engage with this new material, illustrating how exciting and challenging the study of labor law is today.

Defending the Masses

Eric B. Easton

Free speech and freedom of the press were often suppressed amid the social turbulence of the Progressive Era and World War I. As muckrakers, feminists, pacifists, anarchists, socialists, and communists were arrested or censored for their outspoken views, many of them turned for defense to the Free Speech League and its principal trial lawyer, Gilbert Roe.

Critical Justice

Francisco Valdes

Critical Justice equips students and teachers with a framework for confronting systemic injustice by developing systemic advocacy projects rooted in insights of the critical schools of legal knowledge and field-based advocacy approaches. The textbook describes both law's complicity in maintaining injustice and its importance as a tool in struggles to advance equal justice. Drawing on iconic and cutting-edge writings, the textbook outlines the "Critical Challenge" for advocates: how to translate the noble promise of equal justice into lived social realities for all—how to use law for justice.The textbook prepares students to use law for justice by developing systemic advocacy projects that overcome the "blindfolds" and "handcuffs" of traditional legal education and practice. Critical Justice's conceptual and practical toolkit focuses on four key missing elements—social identities, groups, interests, and power—to explain the persistence of systemic injustice, and on redesigned professional norms to promote collaboration with subordinated communities. The textbook defines and illustrates systemic advocacy: systemic advocates craft ameliorative fixes to discrete problems while also transforming the playing field by building the organized power of subordinated groups and shifting consciousness and culture to undermine supremacist ideologies. Critical Justice also presents a template for designing advocacy projects to help students craft fellowship projects and pursue dream jobs.Critical Justice fills a gap in racial and social justice curriculum that connects the dots among systems and oppressions that persist across time and borders. With all author proceeds going to an academic nonprofit with antisubordination aims, this textbook is truly a collective undertaking in praxis toward equal justice for all.

Civil Procedure

Rory D. Bahadur

This book incorporates modern pedagogy principles and active learning. It employs a directed reading approach to flip every class session resulting in higher student readiness and doctrinal understanding. Alternative contextualization, spaced repetition and interleaving are employed in every lesson to facilitate student cognitive schema formation. Active learning exercises result in students reading the rules more carefully and creating deeper and more meaningful context for the rules they are learning than when using traditional, passive casebooks. Formative assessment is continuous and expertly incorporated into the book's structure such that students continuously receive extensive feedback about their learning without any extra labor expenditure on the professor's part. Because active learning at its core, is a constructivist pedagogy that recognizes student learning is achieved through engagement with content rather than hierarchical delivery of information, every chapter in this book and the accompanying directed reading questions are carefully designed discovery sequence exercises that result in deep and efficient understanding of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the cases interpreting those rules in significantly fewer pages than is possible with traditional casebooks. Finally, the book is deliberately designed to be used in both the traditional law school classroom and in the synchronous or asynchronous online setting if the professor chooses to use online instruction rather than traditional face to face instruction methods.
