    Overview

    This eagerly-awaited revision of Modern American Remedies continues to examine the overarching policy themes and principles behind remedies law, with unmatched quality and effectiveness.

    The casebook retains the characteristics that made it the bestseller in the field:

  • outstanding authorship by the widely respected teacher and scholar Douglas Laycock
  • an effective analytical approach structured around general remedial principles; never presents remedies as a compendium of prescriptions for various substantive wrongs
  • balanced coverage of both public and private law, emphasizing their remedial similarities as well as their differences
  • doctrine, fairness, corrective justice, and economic efficiency as competing and often reinforcing approaches; keeps the economics accessible to all
  • logical organization around the basic remedial choices
  • effective cases-and-notes pedagogy, refined in each edition

    Be sure to notice these new and improved features of the Third Edition:

  • completely updated notes and illustrations
  • extensive new note material in areas of rapid development, such as governmental immunities and tort reform
  • reorganized material on structural injunctions is both more concise and more current
  • more focused material on restitution, incorporating major new scholarship
  • major new cases: United States v. Virginia, Lewis v. Casey, and Missouri v. Jenkins, and a note on United States v. Microsoft, all on structural injunctions; Glendale Federal Savings v. United States, on the frontiers of restitution; BMW, Inc. v. Gore on punitive remedies; International Union, United Mine Workers v. Bagwell on contempt of court; Alexander v. Sandoval, on implied rights of action; FEC v. Akins, on private initiation of administrative remedies
