This book was created to present the modern world of employee benefits law in a manner that is both easily understood by the students and enjoyable for the instructor to teach. The book provides a streamlined presentation of the Code rules for qualified plans, thereby making room for an expanded treatment of defined contribution plans (particularly 401(k) plans) and health care plans. Much of the coverage in the book is condensed by using narrative text to introduce each new concept and to summarize the blackletter principles of the law (where they exist). After reading their assignments from this book, students arrive at class with an understanding of the concepts and an ability, based on the numerous illustrations throughout the narrative text, to apply the rules to client situations. The book substantially reduces the amount of class time that must be devoted to eradicating student confusion and explaining how the rules operate. As a result, more class time may be devoted to discussion of the hypothetical client problems, presented periodically throughout each chapter, that are designed to test the students? understanding of the material.
