Weaver, Partlett, Kelly, and Cardi's Remedies: A Contemporary Approach, 4th
Russell L. Weaver, David F. Partlett, Michael B. Kelly, W. Jonathan Cardi
A Better Way to Present Remedies
This state-of the-art casebook is both easy and fun to use. It is designed to give you the basis for an enjoyable, comprehensive learning experience for your students, providing you with the sort of piquing materials that should prompt interested and insightful classroom discussion. The focus here is on teachability, rather than encyclopedic coverage of the field. Classic Supreme Court opinions are included, as well as numerous problem-style hypotheticals that are based on the facts of cutting-edge lower court rulings. The casebook also uses text boxes inside the judicial opinions to pose questions for class discussion, provide practice pointers, and share useful links to information about the history and impact of the decisions. This mixed presentation of traditional doctrines and debates about current legal issues allows your students to hone their analytical skills, as they learn to construct the arguments for today's remedies cases.
