The third edition of Oregon Legal Research has been extensively revised for today's law student. The book explains how to conduct research in Oregon cases, statutes, legislative history, constitutional law, and administrative law--using the most effective tools currently available. WestlawNext, Lexis Advance, and state-specific sites all receive expanded coverage. Additional chapters describe the research process, secondary sources and practice guides, and updating with KeyCite and Shepard's. An appendix reviews current citation to legal sources under Oregon court rules, the ALWD Guide, and the Bluebook. Concise explanations of resources needed for researching federal law are provided throughout. Thus, Oregon Legal Research can be used as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with a research text concentrating on federal law. While Oregon Legal Research was designed specifically for teaching legal research to first-year law students, it has also been successful with upper-level classes. Moreover, practitioners, paralegals, librarians, college students, and even laypeople will find it a useful introduction to Oregon sources. This book is part of the Legal Research Series, edited by Suzanne E. Rowe, Director of Legal Research and Writing, University of Oregon School of Law.

Criminal Liability for Serious Traffic Offences

The criminal law on serious traffic offenses presents legislators with numerous controversial issues. One such issue is when severe consequences are matched with low moral culpability. How should the law deal with a driver who kills someone because she failed to see the person when looking? Another controversial issue concerns highly culpable behavior that remains without serious consequences. How should the law cope with a driver who nearly kills someone when overtaking recklessly? The traffic context generates many hard cases that call the outermost boundaries of general doctrinal concepts like intent, negligence, or causation into question. This book contains an international collection of essays on criminal liability for serious traffic offenses. With a focus on England/Wales, the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Spain, the book reveals that there are enormous differences in both drafting and interpretation of serious traffic offenses. Additionally, it elaborates on the role of culpability and harm in sentencing, traffic-psychological insights relevant to accident causation, and the concept of conditional intent in relation to extremely dangerous traffic behavior.

What constitutes a family? Tracing the dramatic evolution of Americans’ answer to this question over the past century, Kinship by Design provides the fullest account to date of modern adoption’s history. Beginning in the early 1900s, when children were still transferred between households by a variety of unregulated private arrangements, Ellen Herman details efforts by the U.S. Children’s Bureau and the Child Welfare League of America to establish adoption standards in law and practice. She goes on to trace Americans’ shifting ideas about matching children with physically or intellectually similar parents, revealing how research in developmental science and technology shaped adoption as it navigated the nature-nurture debate. Concluding with an insightful analysis of the revolution that ushered in special needs, transracial, and international adoptions, Kinship by Design ultimately situates the practice as both a different way to make a family and a universal story about love, loss, identity, and belonging. In doing so, this volume provides a new vantage point from which to view twentieth-century America, revealing as much about social welfare, statecraft, and science as it does about childhood, family, and private life.
