Dimensions: 9.6in. x 6.6in. x 0.6in.Statutes are now the predominant source of law in our society, the primary resource for legal decisions in all kinds and at all levels of legal practice.

The focus is on explanation and justification with the aim of conveying the sort of understanding that will enable the reader to analyze novel cases and evaluate unfamiliar arguments.

They are still married and have one daughter, a musician. He received a J. D. (magna cum laude, Order of the Coif) from the University of Michigan Law School in 1978 and after three years in practice began teaching in 1981. He taught and wrote in a variety of subjects -contracts, torts, commercial law, intellectual property, banking, jurisprudence, wills and trusts, administrative law, and statutory interpretation -before retiring in 2012.
