Law of Judicial Precedent

Law of Judicial Precedent Lowest new price: $49.95
Lowest used price: $38.24
List price: $49.95
Author: Bryan A. Garner

The Law of Judicial Precedent is the first hornbook-style treatise on the doctrine of precedent in more than a century. It is the product of 13 distinguished coauthors, 12 of whom are appellate judges whose professional work requires them to deal with precedents daily. Together with their editor and coauthor, Bryan A. Garner, the judges have thoroughly researched and explored the many intricacies of the doctrine as it guides the work of American lawyers and judges. The treatise is organized into nine major topics, comprising 93 blackletter sections that elucidate all the major doctrines relating to how past decisions guide future ones in our common-law system. The author's goal was to make the book theoretically sound, historically illuminating, and relentlessly practical. The breadth and depth of research involved in producing the book will be immediately apparent to anyone who browses its pages and glances over the footnotes: it would have been all but impossible for any single author to canvass the literature so comprehensively and then distill the concepts so cohesively into a single authoritative volume. More than 2,500 illustrative cases discussed or cited in the text illuminate the points covered in each section and demonstrate the law's development over several centuries. The cases are explained in a clear, commonsense way, making the book accessible to anyone seeking to understand the role of precedents in American law. Never before have so many eminent coauthors produced a single lawbook without signed sections, but instead writing with a single voice. Whether you are a judge, a lawyer, a law student, or even a nonlawyer curious about how our legal system works, you're sure to find enlightening, helpful, and sometimes surprising insights into our system of justice.

The Effective Deposition: Techniques and Strategies That Work (Nita Practical Guide Series)

The Effective Deposition: Techniques and Strategies That Work (Nita Practical Guide Series) Lowest new price: $53.49
Lowest used price: $1.70
List price: $68.94
Author: David M. Malone
Brand: Brand: Natl Inst for Trial Advocacy

The mechanics of taking and defending depositions are simple, but to avoid mistakes you must be thoroughly familiar with the applicable rules. Small or inadvertent mistakes can cost money and time, and prevent the use of valuable deposition testimony on behalf of your client. In this popular book, David M. Malone and Peter T. Hoffman help you master the critical deposition skills you need to compete in the courtroom.

The Effective Deposition, Revised Second Edition, incorporates the 2000 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. These amendments focus on, among other things, the scope of discovery, the length of depositions, and what is required by the mandatory disclosures. This book discusses how to take and defend depositions under the Federal Rules as they existed through the year 2000 and note any changes due to the 2000 Amendments. Since many states still follow the pre-1993 version of the Federal Rules concerning discovery, the practice under the pre-1993 version is examined as well.

Miracle at Philadelphia: The Story of the Constitutional Convention, May to September 1787

Miracle at Philadelphia: The Story of the Constitutional Convention, May to September 1787 Lowest new price: $16.53
Lowest used price: $5.98
List price: $18.95
Author: Catherine Drinker Bowen

A classic history of the Federal Convention at Philadelphia in 1787, the stormy, dramatic session that produced the most enduring of political documents: the Constitution of the United States.
From Catherine Drinker Bowen, noted American biographer and National Book Award winner, comes the canonical account of the Constitutional Convention recommended as "required reading for every American." Looked at straight from the records, the Federal Convention is startlingly fresh and new, and Mrs. Bowen evokes it as if the reader were actually there, mingling with the delegates, hearing their arguments, witnessing a dramatic moment in history.
Here is the fascinating record of the hot, sultry summer months of debate and decision when ideas clashed and tempers flared. Here is the country as it was then, described by contemporaries, by Berkshire farmers in Massachusetts, by Patrick Henry's Kentucky allies, by French and English travelers. Here, too, are the offstage voices--Thomas Jefferson and Tom Paine and John Adams from Europe.
In all, fifty-five men attended; and in spite of the heat, in spite of clashing interests--the big states against the little, the slave states against the anti-slave states--in tension and anxiety that mounted week after week, they wrote out a working plan of government and put their signatures to it.

Lowest used price: $1.29
List price: $26.50
Brand: Brand: University Press of Virginia

While recent years have seen a flood of literature on the Bill of Rights, this collection of essays, all by highly regarded constitutional scholars, is the first to offer a comprehensive amendment-by-amendment, clause-by-clause account of the Bill's recent sweeping transmutation.

The book confirms the suspicions of critics of judicial activism, suggesting that the provisions of the Bill of Rights have been subjected to much greater interpretive revision by the Supreme Court than other parts of the Constitution.
