An ideal supplement to texts on judicial processes, Real Law Stories: Inside the American Judicial Process is the only undergraduate text dedicated to the presentation of "real-world" interviews with lawyers, judges, and police officers. Each law professional describes his or her job across a range of legal activities and offers insights into the legal process in the United States. Rather than focusing on exceptional or famous cases, authors Richard A. Brisbin Jr., and John C. Kilwein examine the routine, day-to-day functions of lawyers, courts, and the law in personal injury, divorce, employment relations, real estate, and commercial practice; criminal justice; and the appellate process. This "real-world" approach helps students to grasp how law operates in the everyday world while encouraging them to look beyond the mass media's negative portrayals of lawyers, police, and litigants. In order to teach students how to conduct interviews, the authors provide succinct explanations of the judicial process, define legal terms, and provide references for further study.
Richard A. Brisbin Jr., is Associate Professor of Political Science at West Virginia University.
John C. Kilwein is Associate Professor of Political Science at West Virginia University.
