Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The text is a solid overview text for an introductory law and the legal system course. The coverage is appropriate, the content is current and it is written at a level that is suitable for our students. It provides an appropriate mix of narrative discussion and case excerpts."-Brian McCully, Fresno City College

"I like Schubert because it's a good text for teaching students the more detailed aspects of legal or judicial process. … It presents law from an insiders' perspective." -Paul Chen, Western Washington University
