Elder Law: Cases and Materials, Sixth Edition, continues the broad coverage of many elder law topics including Social Security, employer provided pensions, age discrimination in employment, provision of acute and chronic health care, paying for health care including Medicare and Medicaid, housing, mental capacity and guardianship, abuse, and the ethical issues that arise when dealing with older clients. Because many use the book as a "jumping off point" for more extensive reading or discussion, the authors have clarified and expanded the explanatory material so that the student can understand the framework of complex programs such as Medicare and Social Security. In recognition of the importance of the extraordinary cost of long-term care, the authors created a new chapter, "Paying for Long-Term Care", that lays out how Medicaid operates, explains basic Medicaid "planning", the advantages and drawbacks of long-term care insurance, and discusses the other means, such as residence in a continuing care retirement community, that some use to pay for long-term care. In the chapter dealing with the ADEA, the new Sixth Edition features the latest cases that attempt to apply the statute to the complex world of employment. The reforms to Medicare in the last few years are fully covered, and the coverage of Medicaid has been rewritten to make it clearer. The authors have updated and added statistics that illuminate what life is like for older Americans and have expanded the "Questions" that will stimulate students to think carefully about the policies that underlie elder law. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Understanding Criminal Procedure is primarily designed for law students and is organized and written so that both students and professors can use it with confidence to better prepare for courses and improve classroom dialogue. Already cited extensively in scholarly literature and judicial opinions, scholars, practicing lawyers and courts will also find the expanded content of this newest edition indispensable. Inside you'll find extensive coverage of the most important United States Supreme Court cases and discussion of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, federal statutes, and lower federal and state court cases. Overarching policy issues are considered extensively, and some of the hottest debates in the field are considered with high-quality and objective analysis. The user-friendly organization of the text helps you develop a comprehensive understanding of broad topics, or refine your focus with intuitive subsections that help you find answers to pressing questions more efficiently. Citations to important scholarship, both classic and recent, help you to expand and refine your research on specific topics with ease, and footnotes include cross-references within the text to help you easily move to different chapters and subsections to understand how topics are inter-related. This first volume, Investigation, is intended for use in introductory criminal procedure courses focusing primarily or exclusively on police investigative process and constitutional concerns. A chapter on the defendant's right to counsel at trial and appeal and other non-police-practice issues is included in both volumes to allow greater flexibility based on the design of particular courses. The second volume, Adjudication covers the criminal process after the police investigation ends and the adjudicative process commences. It is most useful in more advanced criminal procedure courses that follow the criminal process through the various stages of adjudication, commencing with pretrial issues and explaining the process through charging, pretrial release and discovery, the trial, and post-conviction proceedings including sentencing and appeals.
