The U.S. Legal System: The Basics is a primer on our legal system and law study. The book’s six chapters provide an overview of the U.S. legal system and cover the U.S. Constitution, judicial systems, sources of law, a guide for students on working with case law, and civil dispute resolution. This concise guide gives both traditional and non-traditional students what they need to begin their study of law. 

The Cases and Materials Supplement relates directly to the main text and is intended to work with the Teacher's Manual in allowing this book to be adopted as the main coursebook for a course.

There is a set of 205 PowerPoint slides available upon adoption. Click here to view a sample presentation. If you are a professor using this book for a class, please contact Rachael Meier at to request your slides.
