Legal Malpractice Law

Vincent R. Johnson

Legal Malpractice Law is a practical, problem-oriented text designed for use in elective courses on Legal Malpractice, Professional Liability, or Advanced Legal Ethics. It may also be used in required Professional Responsibility courses that want to focus more on malpractice liability than on lawyer discipline. Each chapter includes explanatory text that relies on recent cases, code provisions, statutes, and commentary. A small number of tightly edited principal cases offer insight into the current state of legal malpractice law. The problems, including many that are based on actual controversies, deal with liability concerns that practitioners encounter. The book examines claims brought by clients and non-clients. It also integrates malpractice prevention lessons. Relevant ethics rules are discussed.

The Constitution of the United States

Michael Stokes Paulsen

This casebook emphasizes the text, structure, and history of the Constitution. It uses "great cases" for learning the major issues in constitutional law, and it gives less attention to small ripples of contemporary doctrine. It emphasizes the task of interpretation, including many examples of the interpretation of the Constitution by the political branches. And it includes features of our constitutional history that are neglected in many casebooks, such as slavery, the amendment process, and the early history of the freedom of speech. The fourth edition has many refinements. It also has new cases on (among other topics) the non-delegation doctrine, legislative investigations, presidential removal, compelled speech, and the free exercise of religion, and new old cases on Article III and on the commerce power. There are also new executive and legislative materials on various topics, including impeachment and the drafting of the Bill of Rights.

A Short & Happy Guide to the Rule

Donald H. Gjerdingen

Most students view the Rule against Perpetuities as the most difficult rule in law school. Moreover, the Rule is still covered on MBE for Property and MEE for Wills and Trusts and yet few student-centered resources exist. The Little Book on Perpetuities fills this gap. An ideal subject for self-study, this guide covers all key parts of the Rule, including problems for self-testing. It presents the Rule in its historical context but in a fun, engaging, and accessible way that is simple and clear for students to use. It can be used for Property classes, as well as Wills & Trusts and can supplement a casebook or be used as a separate, self-continued unit. Coverage includes: the common-law Rule and all the famous classics traps; modern statutory reforms, including the new generations-based rule by the Restatement Third of Property; recent efforts by some states to abolish the Rule; and the history and policies of the Rule.
