"I continue to be thrilled with [this] textbook... The text is truly 'contemporary' in that the cases and problems are drawn from recent, high-profile cases. This greatly enhances the pedagogical experience because students remember many of these cases from their own, pre-law school experiences... I love the statutory focus and the fact that the book includes representative statutes from virtually every state."
