"...One of the interesting examples in the book, is the chapter on "Case Law." The author does a good job of explaining the importance of case law in the United States legal system. The chapter discusses the role that courts play, the use of precedent in case law, the form that decisions take, and even a brief discussion of how decisions are reported. As an added feature, the appendix to the work gives the reader two examples of reported case decisions. This would allow the interested reader to experience the difficulty in trying to read, understand, and analyze court decisions.
"...It should be extremely useful to foreign audiences, beginning course in paralegal training, or any setting where the reader is seeking introductory level material..."
