This unique book uses actual litigation documents and contexts so that students learn doctrine and skills in a real-life setting. Rule and statute deconstruction, case reading, and organizing/synthesizing materials are explicitly taught along with doctrine and are linked to law practice tasks. Introductory materials in each section provide a framework for understanding the material, and questions and exercises help students apply the materials to further their understanding. The user-friendly combination of skills instruction with doctrine is geared to a variety of learning styles.
The teacher's manual includes multiple choice questions, PowerPoint slides and suggested materials (instant feedback forms, YouTube video links, etc.).
This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific.
