2021 Teacher's Manual forthcoming
This casebook, 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.
This casebook is intended to provide readers with a thorough understanding of the California Legislature and its legislative process. The first half of the book covers the Legislature, while the second half of the book explores the legislative process. In addition to the explanatory materials, numerous appellate court cases are included throughout the casebook. The cases included were chosen because they will help explain the relevant areas of law, and the cases are written clearly with analysis of the facts and law to demonstrate to students how the courts reached their decisions.
