About the Book

The casebook is a client-focused, teaching-oriented book. It integrates narrative with cases, statutes, regulatory materials, and commentaries to create a comprehensive, tightly organized teaching tool. A key feature is that, unlike the competing casebooks, the book is replete with problems, questions, and exercises designed to help students apply what they are learning and to facilitate lively classroom discussion. Many of these are client counseling hypotheticals that ask students to advise hypothetical clients or to describe how they would approach a client meeting.

Features:

  • very clear organization
  • combines a client-focused approach with discussion of important current policy issues
  • diverse materials as cases, statutes, regulations, and commentaries are integrated into the casebook itself (no statutory supplement necessary)
  • problem-oriented with problems of varying difficulty integrated throughout to encourage students to apply what they are learning to counsel hypothetical clients
  • discussion questions follow each section to encourage critical thinking and prepare students to engage in lively classroom discussions
  • features longer exercises that can be used as assignments and which can be used to guide students through state-specific research
