Federal Courts: Context, Cases, and Problems features rich pedagogy and well-crafted problem exercises that support a variety of learning styles and teaching approaches. This casebook breaks down and thoughtfully explores the complexities of Federal Courts’ doctrine, while offering clear and comprehensive coverage in a manageable length and student-friendly format.

With an innovative take on the problem method, Federal Courts: Context, Cases, and Problems includes:

a problem-based approach accessible to students in a frequently challenging subject
comprehensive coverage of major federal courts topics that includes all of the relevant statutes, rules, and constitutional provisions
advanced treatment of topics covered in other courses (for example, subject matter jurisdiction and the Erie doctrine)
a hypothetical problem at the front of each chapter that illustrates many of the important issues addressed in the chapter
principal cases that tie into the exposition and illuminate doctrine
clear and concise writing that puts doctrinal concepts within students’ reach without oversimplifying or ignoring the richness and complexity of the Federal Courts’ doctrine
problems integrated throughout each chapter that reinforce and deepen students’ understanding of doctrine
generous use of charts and diagrams to facilitate and support different approaches to learning and teaching
a detailed Teacher’s Manual that includes suggestions for presenting each chapter, insights regarding the hypothetical problems, plus additional supporting materials and reference sources

Authors Allen, Finch, and Roberts explore and reveal the intellectual truths and startling complexities of their subject. You may never go back to teaching Federal Courts the old way again.
