This statutory and case supplement incorporates the newly restyled Federal Rules of Evidence, along with the relevant Advisory Committee's Notes. A side-by-side reprinting of the unrestyled and restyled Rules allows for ready comparison. Editor's notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors' claimed intentions, worked substantive changes in the Rules. This volume also includes proposed amendments to Rules 801(d)(1)(B), 803(6), 803(7), 803(8), and 803(10), together with Advisory Committee's Notes and explanatory editor's notes. A brief case supplement analyzes and incorporates the Supreme Court's ruling in Salinas v. Texas, 133 S. Ct. 2174 (June 17, 2013), which addresses the prosecution's use during its case-in-chief of a suspect's silence in response to noncustodial police questioning. Those who teach with Fisher's Evidence (3d ed. 2013) will benefit from paginated cross-references between the casebook and this rulebook. Students will find it easy to work in tandem with the two sources.

This statutory and case supplement incorporates the latest statutory changes and proposed revisions and the most recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions bearing on evidence law. The statutory component of this volume includes proposals to amend Rule 803(16) and to add two new authentication rules, 902(13) and 902(14). These changes are set to take effect on December 1, 2017. Also included is a newly proposed revision of Rule 807, recently released for public comment and not set to take hold before December 1, 2019. The Advisory Committee's Notes to all these proposed changes appear along with explanatory editor's notes. The statutory component also presents a side-by-side reprinting of the older (pre-2011), unrestyled Federal Rules of Evidence and the newly restyled rules to allow for ready comparison. Editor's notes point out those areas where the restyling project, contrary to its authors' claimed intentions, worked substantive changes in the rules. The case supplement analyzes the Supreme Court's 2017 decision in Pe�a-Rodriguez v. Colorado, in which the Court ruled that the Sixth Amendment's guarantee of an impartial jury overcomes Rule 606(b) and its state-law equivalents and permits defendants to present juror testimony about certain expressions of ethnic or racial bias in the jury room. The supplement addresses the Court's related 2014 ruling in Warger v. Shauers as well as its 2015 decision in Ohio v. Clark and 2013 ruling in Salinas v. Texas. Clark addresses whether the admission against the defendant of a young child's allegation of abuse, made out of court and offered in lieu of the child's testimony at trial, violated the defendant's confrontation right. And Salinas examines the prosecution's use in its case-in-chief of a suspect's silence in response to noncustodial police questioning.

Using a case-oriented approach, the fourth edition of Administrative Law is a case-rich text that focuses on the core issues in administrative law. Lightly-edited cases preserve the feel of reading entire opinions and include facts, content, full analyses, and citations. Introductory material and questions following the cases focus students’ reading and stimulate class discussion. Keystone cases introduce important themes and topics, and helpful notes facilitate keen understanding of legal doctrines. “Theory Applied” sections at the conclusion of major parts offer teachers an opportunity to evaluate students’ grasp of the materials in new factual and legal contexts.

This comprehensive casebook presents thorough coverage of a complex and dynamic subject--educational law and policy in the elementary and secondary school setting. With an emphasis on the interplay between law and policy, legal decisions, and educational practice, the book's interdisciplinary approach provides a wide range of perspectives on the most pressing issues in the field. Cases, legislation, and articles, all of which are accompanied by notes and discussion questions, clarify the issues and bring them to life. The book draws upon a range of social science sources as well as conventional legal materials, offering analyses that provide insights into the political and policy contexts of legal issues, and helping readers make sense of legal decisions. The abundant notes and references also make the book a useful reference work for lawyers or school administrators working in the field.

The Seventh Edition of this course book revises only slightly the organization familiar to its many users, but increases the attention paid to informal processes, current controversies, and the push for open government. Following an introduction to the history, institutional context, and theory of administrative law, students are exposed to four main topics: the political control of administration by Congress and the executive branch; agency processes for adjudication and rulemaking; government access to and required disclosure of information; and judicial remedies for official illegality. Doctrinal analysis is enriched by case studies of the law in action in particular contexts.

Shorter than most Constitutional Law casebooks, American Constitutional Law: Powers and Liberties, 5E provides a broad survey of the field without overwhelming students. The basics of constitutional theory are presented without getting mired in highly theoretical discussions and cases are tightly edited to focus on the most important aspects with additional cases on select topics condensed into narrative summaries. The book focuses on cases and expository text rather than extensive academic commentary, and introductory text provides direction to students as they read and analyze the materials that follow. Additionally, challenging hypotheticals are provided throughout the text for use as student self-assessments or to launch stimulating class discussions. This highly teachable book can be used for a one- or two-semester course and is easily adaptable to suit each professor s preferences.
