Summary

This third edition of Foundations of Law, provides an introductory discussion of American law and its legal system. Concisely written, it presents over 40 excerpted judicial opinions used to illustrate basic themes, language, and interpretative scenarios. Instructive case studies challenge readers beyond acquiring knowledge, so that thorough understanding of concepts and their application in difficult settings can be achieved. Examples of lawsuits emanating from the recent presidential elections are included to highlight points from initial chapters on the legal system, and numerous one-page articles on cases and personalities provide an in-depth view into the history of law.
