Bearing Witness

Thomas A. Kerns

For the first time in history, an international human-rights court has weighed the evidence that fracking and climate change systematically violate human rights. Bearing Witness presents the searing eyewitness testimony and ground-breaking legal arguments that persuaded the court that fracking and resulting climate warming breach both substantive and procedural rights guaranteed by international law, that governments are complicit in these rights-violations, and that the practice of fracking should be banned.

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.

The Jurisprudence of Sport

Mitchell N. Berman

This textbook, the first of its kind, makes it easy—and fun!—to teach an exciting new course on the "jurisprudence of sport." Unlike sports law, which treats sports as objects of regulation by ordinary legal systems, this course treats sports and games as legal systems to be studied in their own right. The book is appropriate not only for law students but also for undergraduates; it offers an introduction to legal thinking but requires no background in legal doctrine.Student-friendly and deeply comparative, the text draws examples from the world's most popular team and individual sports and games (including baseball, football, soccer, tennis, golf, gymnastics, chess, boxing, and esports) and also from less widely known competitions (competitive eating, cornhole, etc.). Chapters are organized in an intuitive sports-focused manner, covering such issues as scoring systems, penalties, league structure, player eligibility and assignment, amateurism, officiating, replay review, and cheating.The jurisprudence of sport is a fast-developing field of academic study. The authors, one of them a leading figure in the field and both professors at top law schools, maintain a high degree of analytical rigor and theoretical sophistication. Icons sprinkled throughout introduce students to fundamental concepts, some law-particular (such as rules vs. standards and prices vs. sanctions) and others from cognate disciplines (such as agency costs, the Coase Theorem, and psychological biases and heuristics).Richly filled with comments, questions, and exercises, the text facilitates a large variety of pedagogical approaches and is suitable for 2- to 4-credit courses.

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.

Numerous problem-style hypotheticals are also included throughout, serving to stimulate and encourage thought and discussion but also to help you focus your students on practice-oriented, analytical skills. The book also contains updated cases that bring the book entirely up-to-date.

A Short & Happy Guide to Agency and Partnership

David Simon Sokolow

This streamlined guide provides a template for analyzing any question on Agency & Partnership you might encounter on your final exam or on the bar. Essentially, it provides you a roadmap to an A. (It is not intended to replace class preparation, but it will certainly suffice in a pinch). Agency used to be a required first-year course (honest!). Now it is shoehorned into Business Associations (or whatever your law school calls it). You can parlay this book's insights into a model answer. Have trouble distinguishing a general partnership from a limited partnership from a limited liability partnership? No more! This book uses examples, outlines, and charts to simplify the complexities of A&P law. Keep this book once the exam is over; it's a handy refresher course on A&P when you are in practice (soon, I swear!).
