This book, the first of its kind, explores in depth the California Legislature's powers and authority, as well as the state legislative process, by reviewing the relevant state constitutional and statutory provisions and key appellate court decisions that interpret and explain many of these provisions. There are also explanatory materials for many of the areas covered, as well as commentaries reflecting current legal issues. Many of these explanations, and all of the court decisions, are followed by notes and questions to provide further insights and prompt additional thought and discussion about the cases and materials covered.
The first half of the book covers the California Legislature itself, while the second half of the book explores the legislative process. In addition to the explanatory materials, numerous appellate court cases are included to help explain relevant areas of law. The selected cases are written with clear analysis of the facts and law to demonstrate to students how the courts reached their decisions.
