Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
The Study of Law is a sweeping, intelligent overview of all the key concepts covered in a typical introduction to law course. A critical thinking approach encourages students to interact with the materials through hypotheticals, examples, and well-designed questions. The text is divided into two parts, reflecting the order of topics addressed in a typical course. The first part, Introduction to the Legal System, presents the sources and classification of law, the structure of the court system, and an overview of litigation. The second part, Basic Legal Concepts, covers the fundamental analysis and interpretation of the law as well as substantive law. The chapters on substantive law use carefully edited cases to teach students how to read and analyze the law. The Study of Law teaches students the basic skills necessary to understand statutes and court cases, and effective pedagogy reinforces the accessible and well-organized text. Appendices address the U.S. Constitution, Fundamentals of Good Writing, and NetNotes.

The Third Edition features updated cases and incorporates new developments in the law. Legal reasoning exercises similarly reflect new cases, and Web exercises accompany this revised edition.
