Book Description

American Law in a Global Context: The Basics (PDF) is an elegant and erudite introduction to the American legal system from a global perspective. It covers the law and lawyering tools taught in the first year of law school; explaining the underlying concepts and techniques of the common law used in U.S. legal practice. The ideas central to the development and practice of American law; as well as constitutional law; property; contracts; criminal law; and courtroom procedure; are all presented in their historical and intellectual contexts; accessible to the novice but with insight that will inform the expert. Actual cases illuminate each major subject; engaging readers in the legal process and the arguments between real people that make American law an ever-evolving system.
