The Fifth Edition provides a comprehensive set of teaching materials for the course in Conflict of Laws as it is taught in most American law schools. It includes some new cases, selected for their teaching value, while also retaining the best cases from the prior edition. It also includes problems in all chapters to test the students' understanding of each segment of material covered in the course. The first three chapters establish the historical background for the study of Conflict of Laws, introduce the students to all of the Conflicts systems existing in the United States, and explore the constitutional limits on the ability of the states to apply their law to multistate transactions and occurrences. With this background, the following four chapters examine the operation of the choice-of-law doctrines used in the areas of torts, contracts, property, and domestic relations. The grounding provided by the first three chapters allows teachers to choose those topics to teach in the following four chapters without necessarily covering the chapters in their entirety if time does not permit. The final three chapters deal with vertical choice of law (the Erie doctrine), interstate judgment enforcement, and personal jurisdiction. The book is organized so that these final three chapters can be covered out of order to suit a wide range of teaching preferences. Each chapter contains note material following the cases to help teachers explore the full range of issues raised by the doctrines being studied. The problems contained in each chapter increase the students' comprehension of the materials and provide a basis for more interesting classroom discussions.

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

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.
