Introduction to American Law and Legal System is a revision of the successful Equal Justice Under the Law. It provides the student with an overview of the system of law and government in the United States. While landmark cases and other cases of interest are referenced throughout the text, this is not a case-based textbook.

This text is designed to provide the conceptual tools needed to prepare individuals for their roles as citizens, paralegals, lawyers, teachers, law enforcement agents, government employees, and judges.
