Pub. Date: 08/01/2009
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press
This new first-year casebook is a unique blend of cases and real-world problems. The authors - nationally known for bridging the gap between theory and practice and collectively possessing more than 150 semesters of teaching first-year property - have created a book using thoughtful decisions by judges wrestling with contemporary problems. This casebook concentrates on issues that are meaningful to students today as learners and will be vital to them later as attorneys. The authors have selected opinions that are intelligible as well as concise, so as to be quickly understood. Scarce class time is thereby made available to apply those rules to contemporary problems. Excerpts from opinions in related cases, statutes, and relevant articles follow each primary case to provide comprehensive overviews of every topic. The second edition includes a number of new decisions and features extensive prefacing to the cases, giving to give students greater guidance as to their significance. Professors will find the extensive Teacher's Manual a fitting companion. It contains over 5,000 questions to put to students: questions that require them to apply the rules, rather than to merely recite what the cases held. Its availability on-line offers professors the convenience of editing, printing and taking these materials as notes directly into the classroom.
