Written by leading Conflicts scholars, this casebook presents a balanced study of Conflict of Laws. The books starts with a discussion of traditional approaches to choice-of-law problems, followed by an examination how modern courts and commentators have struggled to formulate more responsive approaches. The remaining broad topics--constitutional limitations on choice of law, the Erie doctrine, personal jurisdiction, conflicts in the federal system, recognition of judgments, conflicts in the international context, choosing legal regimes and choice of law in complex litigation--are considered in light of the wisdom derived from consideration of the basic choice-of-law problems. Key New Features: Chapter on Conflict of Laws in the Federal System, which was deleted in the 6th edition, is added back at the request of adopters; the chapter does not attempt a comprehensive coverage of issues that are typically addressed in a civil procedure or federal jurisdiction course but instead focuses on the federalism questions that are relevant to conflict of laws. Addition of Goodyear v. Brown and Daimler v. Bauman to the chapter on personal jurisdiction, two Supreme Court cases that greatly modernize the subject New discussion of the impact of law and economics on choice of law theory Discussion of new cases on post-9/11 scope of constitutional limits New examples pertaining to recognition of judgments in domestic relations cases, e.g., child kidnapping Continued coverage of the First Restatement rules that continue to be important, with less emphasis on First Restatement rules of less relevance today. Re-introduction of discussion of New York cases addressing choice of law theory, with focus on important new cases

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.

Constitutional Law: Cases and Materials, Second Edition is structured for a three-to-five hour introductory course in Constitutional Law. Coverage includes a review of the power of the three coordinate branches of the federal government with�--as befitting a law school--particular emphasis on the Federal and Supreme Courts. Also, as befitting our law school's namesake, Thurgood Marshall, emphasis in regard to Individual Rights includes Application of the Bill of Rights and the fundamental rights to Due Process, both substantive and procedural, as well as Equal Protection. First Amendment issues are not included: given their importance, it is assumed that they will be covered in separate course offerings, as is now most often the case. A word in regard into coverage in this volume that is unique and/or meaningful in regard to our approach to the subject matter, is also fitting. We feel there are significant and meaningful differences in this work. Structuring Article III jurisdictional requirements as they are affected by a given subject matter in relation to how the judicial power should be applied in a democratic society has been a traditional challenge in Constitutional Law Casebooks. To facilitate understanding we commence the course so as to confront the interplay between these issues. Thus, this work begins with a "mini course" in Supreme Court decision making. Here, we unabashedly use the controversy generated by the "privacy and abortion cases" to show how actual case law is effected by the "weak origins" of judicial review and the conflict in the need to limit governmental power (the Constitution as fundamental law) by a non-elected Court in a democratic society. Our purpose is to allow the student to understand how the substantive contemporary controversies in the subject matter affect how the Court applies the judicial power. We feel this is an excellent means to prepare the student to understand how the use of the case and controversy requirements in Article III are applied to restrain the judicial power and bow to the democratic process, as exemplified by the "historic" privacy cases. We also feel that allowing the students exposure to some of the classic articles dealing with these issues will also benefit their understanding of the subject matter. Our experience in commencing with a "mini course" in constitutional decision making, as a pre-requisite to covering substantive case law, has been quite positive. We feel this work is also distinguishable and attractive where a desire to emphasize civil rights and the Fourteenth Amendment is present. Here, as one might expect from Faculty of the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, there is more extensive coverage of slavery, segregation, and civil rights, with a very "realist view" of the role the Supreme Court has played from slavery to present. Thus, we emphasize Fourteenth Amendment Rights and their enforcement. Faculty who share our interests and concerns we feel will well benefit from selection of the work, and we welcome any questions in this regard. Martin Levy Craig Jackson

Modern Family Law reflects the social diversity of the modern family as it examines the legal impacts of the women’s movement, the children’s rights movement, the fathers’ rights movement, domestic violence, changing sexual mores, nontraditional family forms, and developments in reproductive technology. Integrating valuable interdisciplinary perspectives, the text includes excerpts, notes, and questions emanating from history, psychology, sociology, social work, medicine, and philosophy. A variety of problem exercises, most derived from actual cases and current events, covers cross-cutting themes as well as the basics of family law. Human-interest stories that complement the cases heighten student awareness of the real impact of the law on people’s lives. Modern Family Law easily adapts to shorter or longer courses. The Sixth Edition offers contemporary perspectives on family law theory and covers new developments on such topics as alienation of affections, adoption, assisted reproduction, attorneys’ sexual ethics, bigamy, child abuse, child custody and support, divorce, domestic violence, grandparents’ visitation rights, names in the family, parentage, premarital agreements, and reproductive rights. The text features major coverage of developments on same-sex marriage, DOMA, and other issues of equality for gay and lesbian families. The decline of marriage and the rise of new conceptualizations of family are explored along with the return of the “culture wars,” including political disputes about contraception.
