Washington (2004), presents the material on confrontation and hearsay in a dramatically reorganized manner that emphasizes basic concepts and greatly reduces the time spent on a march through the hearsay exceptions. It also includes for the first time a chapter focusing on a topic made especially salient by recent developments, the treatment of observations by children. The book presents straightforward explanations and problems, many of them drawn from actual cases, designed to make assignments short and class preparation efficient for students and teachers.

This is the updated edition of the textbook that pioneered the teaching of Evidence using problems rather than appellate opinions. The text explores the Rules of Evidence and their rationales in a straightforward fashion without hiding the ball or ignoring complexities. Problems that clarify the Rules appear throughout the chapters; larger problem sets that explore the Rules in detail are found at the ends of chapters. The updated edition discusses important recent cases and introduces social science findings and recent developments in science and technology that bear on the design and operation of the Rules of Evidence, and on their rationale.

Labor Law in the Contemporary Workplace is organized around contemporary problems as a means of teaching the core principles of labor law. It prepares students for the practice of labor law in the contemporary workplace by introducing them to the principles of American labor law and many of the issues that labor law attorneys face. Although the primary focus of the book is the National Labor Relations Act, considerable attention is given to the Railway Labor Act and public-sector labor laws because of their growing relative importance in contemporary practice. The second edition takes account of changes in the law since the first edition was published and in particular new interpretations of the National Labor Relations Act by the National Labor Relations Board and recent state restrictions on public sector collective bargaining.
