An Introduction to the Anglo-American Legal System: Readings and Cases

Front Cover
Thomson/West, Jan 1, 2004 - Law - 258 pages
The authors have retained most of the original text with revisions to reflect new developments, while adding edited reports of many new cases. The new cases emphasize recent decisions of the United States Supreme Court, but also include an eclectic group of decisions by state appellate courts. Instructors who wish to introduce students to the case method of legal analysis will find they have ample resources to do so; instructors who wish to emphasize textual description of the key features of the Anglo-American legal system will find all the necessary materials still at hand, and may pretermit the illustrative cases as they see fit.
