The Sixth Edition of this highly-regarded casebook continues its innovative emphasis on the connection between the law of trusts and estates and the changing American family. The Sixth Edition incorporates the most recent uniform acts from the Uniform Law Commission and the Third Restatements of the American Law Institute, and discusses the very latest "hot" topics, including trust protectors, directed trusts, trust decanting, family offices, and donor standing to enforce charitable trusts. The Sixth Edition also incorporates new important cases, such as the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Hillman v. Maretta (2013). The authors of this book have long been at the forefront of law reform in trusts and estates, and this tradition continues under the authorship of Thomas Gallanis, who is the executive director of the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts. He was also an associate reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts and has been the reporter of two uniform acts, most recently the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act (completed 2013). The Sixth Edition emphasizes problems and questions to facilitate classroom discussion and analysis. Among many other things, the book teaches doctrine and policy, planning and drafting, case analysis and statutory interpretation. The detailed teacher's manual includes extensive syllabi and notes for classroom teaching.

The Fifth Edition continues the emphasis on real-life problems and transactions that has distinguished these teaching materials for decades. As in previous editions, the Problems are tailored to focus the student's attention on the relevant statutory language and its application to common patterns of secured financing. They emphasize counseling, planning, drafting, and litigation skills. In addition to more traditional Problems, which ask the student to predict the outcome, many of the Problems ask the student to give advice to clients, to structure transactions, and to draft certain provisions of documents. Many of the Problems are based upon Prototype transactions that feature actual transaction documents. The first financing an automobile dealer's inventory and financing a consumer buyer's purchase of an automobile from the dealer affords the basis for a discussion of basic Article 9 concepts in a concrete setting. The second Prototype features an accounts and inventory borrowing-base secured credit facility and includes a revolving credit agreement and security agreement. This Prototype forms the basis for detailed coverage of various types of financing secured by receivables and other intangible property.

"Property lawyers are increasingly engaged in environmental issues, whether it be the increased interest in conservation easements, national regulation of land use through such statutes as the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Water Act, problems of hazardous waste cleanup, pressures to open private land to public use, or dozens of other environmental additions to traditional property law. This new casebook is the first to provide significant materials on emerging and important environmental issues in the property field. It provides an in-depth treatment of traditional property doctrines, while providing cutting-edge coverage of these emerging environmental questions."--Publisher's website.

This is a book about media law, not a book about the First Amendment. Media law has many sources other than the First Amendment. The law of defamation & invasion of privacy is largely state common law. A reporter's privilege to refuse to disclose confidences is controlled in many states by statutes. Open-meetings & open-records statutes determine the outcome of most controversies over press access to government information. Broadcast regulation is largely accomplished by federal statutes & Federal Communications Commission regulations. Mass Media Law, Sixth Edition explores these sources in a thought-provoking manner that will add to class discussion.
